2011 World Champs/Daegu: Some of My Fave photos, Moments, by Larry Eder

Old guys rule! Kim Collins, photo by PhotoRun.net

The fact is, Kim Collins, the 2003 World Champ, almost won the 2011 World Champs 100 meters. Yohan Blake and Walter Dix ran him down over the last half of the race. That Kim is still running, eight years after his first World Champs victory, and now in his eighth World Champs, is amazing. And as someone told me that night, "Every old fart in the world should be happy for Kim Collins. At 36, the guy is still sprinting! " I could not have said it better!

The men's 10,000 meter race was one for the ages! Mo Farah and Ibrahim Jeilan battled unto the end and, and the crowd in the stadium was mesmerized. What else could have Mo done? He was totally spent afterwards and Ibrahim Jeilan was, well a photographers dream. Check the following photo out, and you will get my drift.

Ibrahim Jeilan won the gold in the 10,000 meters, and then he became a dancing machine. Well, an Ethiopian dancing machine. He had the crowd going wild and photographers snapping for fifteen minutes. His dancing may have overshadowed his 10,000m win!
