Racing to Gold

"Ayanleh Souleiman of Djibouti fails to finish the Men's 1500 metres heats during day six of the 15th IAAF World Athletics Championships Beijing 2015 at Beijing National Stadium on August 27, 2015 in Beijing, China."


This past month, I had the amazing opportunity to travel to Beijing, China to cover the 15th IAAF World Athletics Championships with Getty Images.

Nine days - inside and outside of the oval of Beijing National Stadium - and working as one alongside an amazing Getty Images team of photographers and editors - was a lot of fun and hard work.

This event is considered one of the major events in the world as athletes use this extended week to focus on the upcoming Summer Olympics. Every event, every race that takes place here is home to the biggest names in athletics such as Usain Bolt and Ashton Eaton.

Being fairly new to the world of athletics, or track and field, everything was fresh. The venue was stunning, the light was fantastic and emotions were tense.

With hundreds of photographers and placed in different places each day, these were my views of a fantastic meet in China.
