After the success of the Swimming World Championships, XD Motion moved on to the the Moscow Athletics World Championships. Again, a World premiere was accomplished with an X Fly 2D cable system operated in the Loujniki stadium. This system was operated to move the camera horizontally and vertically. A 100 m long X track was equipped with two gyro-stabilized heads carrying Slow and Ultra Slow motion cameras. The positioning of theses systems in parallel of the track produced incredible images. A vertical track was also positioned in the hammer/discus cage. Finally, marathon was also a highlight of the championships: President Vladimir Putin authorized a helicopter to fly over Moscow with XD motion’s gyro-stabilized head. This is the first time ever that a non-Russian crew was authorized to do this.
