Wimbledon Cameraman Does It For Aunt May

By: 06.25.12

In super important tennis news, Wimbledon camera operator ‘Colin’ tripped backwards over a canvas barrier trying to get footage of Elena Vesnina signing autographs and ended up trapped under his own apparatus. DAMN YOU, CAMERA THREE.

The commentary team calmly points out his fall and notes, “thank goodness it was a grass court he landed on”, as if a foot-and-a-half fall backwards onto a clay court would’ve shattered his spine. Wimbledon should start playing on spiked steel courts just to validate them.

The worst part had to have been looking like such a goon in front of Elena. We’ve all been there, Colin.
