The Olympics are over, and what a ride it has been. I’ve covered a variety of events, some for the first time. Although the days have been long, it has been a pleasure capturing Olympic moments from the world’s top athletes. Documenting them as they compete at this level and capturing their emotion gives a photographer a lot to work with. On a professional note, I am in awe of the amazing work that was produced here on a daily basis. It has been a pleasure to meet and work next to the best sports photographers in the world. Covering the Olympics is a privilege, and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
