Going For Gold

The Olympics are great, aren’t they? Excitement, incredible feats of athleticism, good-looking bodies… Yeah. It’s been fun!

But like most events (I’m looking at you, Oscars), one of my most favorite aspects of the Olympics is the sheer amount of fantastic photography that’s derived from it. And the Olympics are doubly great, because of the sheer amount of emotion that goes into the whole thing. In fact, I’d be pretty surprised if I came across a dull photo from the London Olympics.

Via their website, NBC has done an awesome job of showcasing some of the best photos from the Games. Below are a handful of the images that I find most interesting, heartwarming, etc. All of these images – and a boat-load more – can be found here.
