With so much happening on the track as well as out in the field, catching photos of all the events at a track meet is difficult and of every athlete is impossible. The distance races give the photographer a couple of chances to capture each athlete but the dashes only give you one opportunity. The 100m dash allows you to shoot continuously as the athletes run by but the hurdles are much more difficult because if the athlete is not captured going over the hurdle is it a ‘hurdle’ photo?

I have tried photographing the athletes individually at the last set of hurdles and as a group coming over the first row hurdles. Since my telephoto lens was not working, the group shots ended up being my only viable option at the meet.
