Sprinters nearly run over cameraman at World Athletics Championships,

A pack of sprinters nearly ran over a cameraman who wondered onto

The track during an event at the World 

Athletics Championships in Eugene, Ore. The near-collision occurred during

The men's 3,000-meter steeplechase Monday at Hayward Field on the University of Oregon campus.

The runners, who are tasked with avoiding obstacles during the event,

Rounded a turn and were on a straight stretch of the track when

The cameraman stood in Lane 2, with his back to the field.
