Olympics photos

Have you been watching the Olympics? These photos show the crazy emotion of the games. I can't imagine how nervous the athletes must be the moment before their competition starts. See more here.

I get so nervous whenever I watch the program...even when I know the results in advance. :P

Those are incredible!!

Simone said...

It's so exciting....I am glued to it here in London :)

Clio said...

These are crazy! Isn’t it funny to try and spot how many of them have the olympic rings tattooed on their bodies? You notice it most with swimmers but I’d say there’s an awful lot of them about ;)

I really just can't get enough of the Olympics. I wish there was something every year!

Those photos are amazing. I can't even imagine how they feel.

Liz said...

wow. these are so incredible!! my husband and I booked a last minute trip to London this weekend (we live in Amsterdam). We were watching all the coverage on BBC and couldn't stand how CLOSE we were, yet so FAR. So we just spontaneously decided we'd make it happen! So excited!

P.S. Thanks to your post on De Kas, we decided to go there for our 2 year wedding anniversary next week. Looking forward to the whole dining experience :)

Sarah said...

Such an emotional, amazing journey! Love all the pictures.

Christina said...

I'm obsessed. I go to bed too late every night. I'm so tired, but it's so worth it!

Jen S said...

These photos definitely made me tear up

Sarah @ See Sarah Bake said...

Anyone else think the 3rd photo looks like Scott Disick? (and yes, I'm ashamed to admit that I know who that is....)

Rachel Holt said...

I'm absolutely loving the Olympics and these photos. My entire family is glued to it here in London no tickets unfortunately). We had a power cut on Sunday evening after the swimming, which we've decided was the TV's way of telling us we'd been sat down in front of it for too long! C'mon Team GB!

Jay said...

Olympic coverage is like an addiction for me - I just can't get enough! I can only imagine the emotions the athletes go through - I'm nervous for them and tear up when they're either really happy or defeated.

Mindy Day said...

Welcome to London all who visit, we are very pleased to see you all :)

Go Team GB! (sorry couldn't resist!)

stephanie said...

Where did the photos in your post come from? My friend's dad is an AP photographer covering tennis, so I'm wondering if that tennis photo is his!

Kristina @ Sarcire said...

The athletes are one thing- but have you seen the parents' reactions? NBC shot US gymnast Aly Raisman's reaction to her bar routine- and they were hilarious. http://tinyurl.com/c9384xd

Anyway, thanks for sharing these photos!

xo,
Kristina

oh man, when jordyn weiber didn't qualify for the all around sunday nite, i think all of us girls who wanted to be gymnasts when we were little felt that. such a powerful nite.

CFunk said...

The pure emotion is incredible... But for a laugh, you should check out these Olympic pics: http://thefw.com/olympic-diving-funny-faces/

I have the greatest respect for the athletes: I might berate myself for a mistake at work, but I can't imagine what it would be like if I relied on my body and physical attributes to perform well as 'work'... crazy! The underarm muscles on the swimmers blow my mind, each one is bigger then any muscle in my entire body!

Trina said...

I must admit I've mostly just been watching for Zara Phillips doing the equestrian events. K&W look so adorable watching her. It's fun to see the royal cousins showing up in support.

Charlotte said...

I'm almost ashamed to say that I really can't be bothered with it. Those pics made me smile though x

RosieB said...

These pictures really do capture it well. I'm watching the women's gymnastic final right now, eeeek! Not usually a huge sports fan but I love the spirit of the Olympics :)

I'm exhausted just watching. Their hard work and dedication is truly something to marvel at.

Definitely watching. It was sad to see the American men miss the mark in gymnastics last night, but also great to see Britain get a medal! Princess Harry and William were so cute to watch in the audience. Can't wait to see the women's teams compete tonight.

Christine @Fancy Function said...

Great shots! I try to watch at night and try not to get spoiled before I get to watch.

Kristen Eleni Shellenbarger said...

Great captures except, WHERE ARE THE EQUESTRIAN moments?!??? Wow... disappointing they didn't share any of those great moments.

leathergal said...

Awesome photos! A gal from my town just won the U.S. Bronze for Judo! Fun to have a hometown hero to celebrate:)

Catherine Hathaway said...

it's so intense. i get totally into it too. i was freaking out during the mens 400 relay. felt totally crushed for jordan in womens gymnastics. great pictures.

Valerie (Pieceful Wedding) said...

These are great photos...they really do capture the emotional side of these competitions.

Lost in Provence said...

My honey is a professional photographer who started out in sports. He has shot FIVE games and says that it is far more moving than we can imagine!

Rachel said...

These pictures are amazing. I found some amazing photos of Olympics kisses today. I love getting an inside look at the althletes and their emotions.

Thanks for sharing those awesome photos. We can't get enough of the games, the joy and the heartbreak.

Lisamarie said...

Thank you so much for sharing these pictures. Amazing. One of my good friends, Courtney, is on the women's Olympic water polo team. She dominated yesterday against Hungary. She has been so dedicated in her training over the past couple of years. It is amazing to see her enjoy this experience. How nice for the individuals of our hostile world to join together for some friendly competition? The Olympics truly are a special time for everyone.

I am addicted to this.

Joanna! I clicked the link to more photos, and found one from the opening ceremony (the one of Paul McCartney) that was taken by my dad! He's a photographer for the Associated Press and is in London now shooting tennis. I just thought that was so cool!

I am hoping to visit the Olympics sites on saturday, it looks amazing, i hope weather is nice so we can have a picnic, but you never know with our british weather...

Elizabeth said...

I have been watching so much Olympic action (I'm a teacher) that I really need to leave the house soon! I went to the weightlifting on Sun which was awesome (especially when they played Spandau Ballet's 'Gold' after the medal ceremony) and I've got a few other things scheduled including taking school kids to Basketball on Fri evening. We get to see Team GB (yay) in one game and USA in another. The vibe in London is really cool and it's very exciting to meet fans from all over the world.
Wasn't the opening ceremony amazing?

I'm an Aussie that lives in London
So for me the rivalry between us and the Brits is pretty strong.
But I've been watching pretty much everything in the olympics (I love sport dream of working for Swimming Australia or Swim USA).
These photos sum it up brilliantly.
