Rivalry

And opposed to the previous post, these two runners, not being in the hunt for a medal, were all fired up at the last stretch. The Malaysian runner (left) eventually nudged ahead of his Singapore rival.

You sure show the fight and struggle occurring.
Ayush Basu: I got a series of shots on the burst mode, Michael.
Je suis toujours en admiration devant tes magnifiques photos.
Ayush Basu: Vous êtes trop gentil
Very kind of you to say so, Martine. Merci.
Excellent action shots! I quite perfer the top one as they seem being three legged...
Ayush Basu: It does seem a bit amusing now that you mention it, Richard. Thank you.

The final dash for the line. The anguish on the face of the guy behind is clearly evident. A fine capture.
Ayush Basu: The last stretch.. worth blowing out their lungs for, Alan!

Yes...rivalry!

It seems like you might be showing us the shots in reverse sequence, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Yeah, it does look like it, doesn't it?

Oh they're really going for it Ayush!
Ayush Basu: The last stretch.. worth blowing out their lungs for!
The bliss and the agony personified!
Ayush Basu: All kinds of facial expressions to be seen in sporting events, Ginnie.

LOL compete much? way cute shots!!
Ayush Basu: Yeah it was a moment that deserved to be captured, Elaine.
I expect the runner up will now be buying himself some go faster muscle tape Ayush.
Ayush Basu: I am not sure how effective it is, but yes, he might blame it on the tape of his rival, Chad.

Keeping focus on fast advancing objects is very difficult. You have no problem, there.

I like it when the back runners still take the finish line seriously.
Ayush Basu: The 7DII and 70-200 perform admirably, Louis. I have screwed up though, on several occasions.
The sweat is flying.
Ayush Basu: A testament to their efforts, Mary.
No doubt they both still enjoyed their race.
Ayush Basu: I guess it is the same as any other place when contestants from across the border compete. They enjoy but are intensely competitive, Brian. Besides they were probably too out of breath to punch each other grin

You can even see the sweat coming off these runners - very sharp image!
Ayush Basu: A testament to their efforts, Emily. Thank you.
superb action Ayush... they weren't giving away an inch between them....petersmile
Ayush Basu: Thank you Peter, I guess it is the same as any other place when contestants from across the border compete.
Their own personal battle, but still giving their all. Cracking pictures Ayush
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much, Bill. I guess it is the same as any other place when contestants from across the border compete.
Fierce!
Ayush Basu: Absolutely!
So much sweat!
Ayush Basu: A testament to their efforts, LC.
Great action shots, Ayush, very dramatic.
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Frank. They traded punches at the end finishing line - kidding, they were too winded for that grin
I wonder how much national rivalry is being played out in the field vs. personal pride?
Ayush Basu: Good point, Michael. But in this case, it is I suspect the former more than the latter.
Great faces...
Ayush Basu: Athletes are focussed in their world. A variety of faces are always seen in the sporting events, Larry.

It all looks rather painful!
Ayush Basu: It was a bit of physical pain and mental anguish, CP. Thank you for looking back in at these images!
