Cameraman on a Segway Runs Over Usain Bolt… Another Reason to Hate Segways

Ah, here we go again talking about Segways.

What was once considered to be a revolutionary technology capable of replacing cars for good has become the butt of many jokes over the past few years.

The over-hyped vehicle completely rolled over the world’s fastest man, Usain Bolt, as a result of a cameraman in Beijing accidentally losing control of the device.

Luckily for Bolt and the cameraman, no serious injuries were sustained, and Bolt was able to pop right back up off the ground.

While Bolt’s 20-minute victory lap at the World Athletics Championships in Beijing might have been cut short, at least the cameraman learned a valuable lesson…

Segways are a thing of the past and unsafe. Get a hoverboard, man!
