Last night Nick Symmonds ran the 800 meter in 1 minute and 43.92 seconds, the fastest 800 ever recorded by an American at Hayward Field, but Duane Solomon Jr. stole the show for me. His time of 1:44.65 earned him the third spot on the Olympic Team but also achieved the “A” standard. I shot the race with a 400mm 2.8, and because I didn’t have a second body with a wide angle, kept shooting with the 400mm.
