was watching the prize giving ceremony on tv yesterday evening. after collecting their prizes, the 4 swimmers walked as a group past a group of photographers (looks like official photographers or press), the swimmers paused and posted for photographs.
After a few group shots, one of the pg asked the 'other' swimmers to move aside, so that he can shoot Rainer alone. i cant hear what he says, only saw him doing hand action asking the other swimers to step aside.
while i understand that the press may 'need' a solo photo of Rainer, i somehow feel sorry for the other swimmers, they were made less significiant at the moment.
maybe this is a common scene and common request in big events, but i see it for the first time. I wonder what the pro cs'ers think? can give your comment? is there a better way to handle this siutation if I am the pg?
