Reflections of the Women's Marathon

London Olympics 2012

The women's marathon took place on Sunday, 5 August.....
yet the rainy London day didn't slow these ladies down.
Ethiopia's Tiki Gelana not only wins the gold medal -- she set a new Olympic Record
of 2hr 23min 07sec!!
Tiki Gelana is seen here running behind the two Kenyans on the right.   
It's pretty obvious when the runners are getting near..... 
just look for the truck load of press photographers!
Fans stood in the rain for hours to
witness the greatest women's marathon runners
and cheer them on in front of the Tower of London
 Generous fans offered extra umbrellas to many
of the yellow vested volunteers.
A kind gesture indeed on this rainy Sunday.
The volunteers did an outstanding job.
Our thanks to all those that gave their time
to help make the London Olympics run so smoothly.

Celebrating the Games.....

 London Olympics 2012....
Olympics celebrations are in full swing in the venue 
within Hyde Park.  There are big screens with 
different events playing all day long, vendors with refreshments,
and as you see below...... lots of colorful people.
I didn't realize I had caught the same women in two photos -- once in the park 
and again leaving on a boris bike -- until reviewing the photos after getting home!
Nothing real spectacular about these images just sharing a little of the color & spirit of the games :)

Fans young and old show
their spirit and enjoy the games in Hyde Park!
