      thanks! I was surprised by the results with the $120 Nikon 70-300mm D lens. I just chose Sports mode and clicked away - 3fps seemed to be just good enough. These women were neck and neck all the way to the end.

      Crikey - look at the concentration on those runner's faces.

      Great photo - I borrowed it to illustrate a blog post about the 2012 Olympic renewable energy plans.

      Here's a link to your photo in situ:
