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.


  1. Hey Cheryl, love the shot of the photographers all huddled together. And great colors in the the rainy weather.

  2. Hi Mike - the photographers were on this vehicle that came by in front of all the marathon runners so it was nice for us. Gave us a great lead on timing to be ready for the front runners. It didn't look like a very comfortable ride with them all crammed in there!
