Default Track Photos - Mt SAC Relays, California

I spent yesterday in Walnut, CA at one of the largest track meets in the US. Most pics are of cadet-athletes from the US Air Force Academy--I travel with the team officially, but only as an amateur photographer. It gives me a chance to practice. All taken with Canon 7D and 70-200 F4L.
#1 Air Force pole vaulter easily clears 16'1"

#2 Stride for stride in the last 200 meters of the 1500m

#3 Another pole vault shot...

#4 First stride in the 200m

#5 Men's shot put

#6 More shot put

#7 Women's hammer throw. I missed this one, but I kind of like the effect. Manual focus required looking through the protective netting.

#8 Winning vault in the women's competition (14'1")

#9 The second place vaulter

#10 A blazingly fast men's 5K - with 300m to go. (AF runner ran 13:37)
