Look at Usain Bolt’s expression here:
He is overflowing with emotion. As well he should be!
What I love about the Olympics is obvious from looking at the great slide shows that the nytimes.com puts together. The thing that I love is the human drama of it. The Olympics is packed with it. You see joy, despair, pain, excitement, disappointment, happiness, anger….it’s all there in the faces of the athletes competing. And so much of it. You can’t get that from most other events. But with the Olympics, you get a wealth of that. And that’s just one of the reasons that I think the Olympics is great.
Check out the slide shows at nytimes.com. They are superb. You can find them here
