During an intermission in the half-marathon, I turned my camera 180 degrees and captured this flying water person. The leap was followed by an undignified splash, the boat stopped, and "DaiJoBu, DaiJoBu?" ("Are you OK? Are you OK?"), could be heard over the loud hailer. This is what you shout at someone who looks dead but might just be pretending. The boat tracked back and pulled them out. They seemed to be not very dead after all. I was quite relieved not to have captured someone's last living moment.
P.S. Click on the image in flickr to see a larger version, which is much clearer.
