Men's Discus Throw Finals 1

Not much reference without the discus, but I wanted to share his effort with you folks! This is Aroonsil Malasri from Thailand, securing a silver with a throw of 47.10m. No photographers or camera equipment got clobbered in the making of this image.

A wonderful action shot here, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: I am delighted you feel that way, Ray.
You seem so close Ayush, good work.
Ayush Basu: I was behind the net and shooting through the loops, Chad. Thank you.

A statuesque pose
Ayush Basu: Statuesque indeed, Chris. It would take 5 mortals to lift and move him if he decided to freeze up.
Superb action shot Ayush!
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Richard.

you don't need a reference, that's an awesome shot!! i'll bet you could make a living as a sports photographer!
Ayush Basu: Very kind of you, Elaine, for that remark!
Well it had to be that or the shot ! I like this Ayush as it is a portrait as much as a sports shot
Ayush Basu: Unfortunately, the shot putting was going on simultaneously on the other side of the field so I could not cover that, Bill!
A lot of raw strength...
Ayush Basu: Very much so, Larry.

Very intense shot! I am really enjoying this sporting series smile
Ayush Basu: I get some opportunities to shoot sports every now and then, Emily - so I have some of these popping up now and then.
Nice look of intense concentration.
Ayush Basu: This sport certainly demands a lot of concentration, Michael.

Ayush Basu: This sport certainly demands a lot of concentration, Rob!

grin.... it shows the great explosion of force... wonderful series and it shows you enjoyed being there with all the athletes smile
Ayush Basu: I did enjoy being there, Astrid. It is an humbling experience to see all the youth put in such effort and dedication in what they are passionate about.
Discus is hard! I always dropped the darned thing!
Terrific shot, Ayush!! Great timing!
Ayush Basu: I never pursued it, Elizabeth - more in the interest of safety of those around me tongue
LOL, Ayush. I'm so glad you and your camera are safe-n-sound. smile Great action shot!
Ayush Basu: I was shooting through the loops of a net that surrounds the pit, Ginnie. A few more shots in the coming days will probably give a bit more idea of the situation.

I am glad that there was no blood shed and tears.

Great action shot.
Ayush Basu: My following strategy has so far worked: (1) check with the competition manager where and where not I am permitted to step on to, (2) eye ball my surroundings to make sure I do not get flattened by a projectile and (3) get out once I have my shot. So far, so good, Louis!
He he... Look at his eyes.
Ayush Basu: This sport certainly demands a lot of concentration, LC.

You've succeeded in your objective then because the effort is clearly evident.
Ayush Basu: This sport demands loads of focus and concentration, Alan. Thank you.
Long lens necessary!
Ayush Basu: My following strategy has so far worked: (1) check with the competition manager where and where not I am permitted to step on to, (2) eye ball my surroundings to make sure I do not get flattened by a projectile and (3) get out once I have my shot. So far, so good, Tom...
