Sprinters are almost always at risk for leg injuries when they're on the track — just usually not from Segways.
Usain Bolt was taking a victory lap after winning his fourth consecutive 200-meter victory when a cameraman on a Segway hit a railing and lost control — barreling right into Bolt.
The accident took Bolt's legs out from under him and gave all of Jamaica, and especially that cameraman, a tense few seconds.
