Cameraman in Oman pulls off effortless backheel while doing his job

Dirty Tackle

Normally when cameramen come into contact with the sport they're covering, it's through a painful blooper like a collision with the athletes or getting smacked by a ball. But a touchline cameraman working a match in Oman was able to show off his own coordination while doing his job when an errant ball came his way.

Without taking his hands off the camera, he casually kicked his foot behind his back, delivering it right into the hands of the player who would take the throw in. And that's what perfection looks like.

Though Zlatan Ibrahimovic may have had the greatest goal of 2012, this was by far the greatest cameraman backheel of the year.
