The long and short of it
The hurdler picture was shot with my 300mm f.4 lens set to the widest aperture. The long jump shot was taken with a 16-35mm zoom lens set to 16mm and the f-stop around f-11. I didn't even look through the lens but set the camera down just shy of the sand pit and aimed toward the runway.
Two different perspectives with two different lenses that yield a sort of similar shot. It never hurts to try a different location or lens on assignment and look for that different view.
