Rio Olympics: Big Throw from a Big Guy

All Shot Put athletes are big, but Ryan Crouser (USA) adds height as well as girth to the equation.  At 6.7" he could be playing basketball, but instead as gone into the family business.  Crouser spun his way into a new Olympic Record of 73' 10 1/4", clearly enough for the Gold Medal as well.  The Americans ended the night taking both Gold and Silver in the event.

This is a small watercolors and ink painting measuring just 4"x6" and was created using Yarka St. Petersburg watercolors and Steve Quiller brushes from www.richesonart.com.  This painting and all of my Olympics artwork will be available through my artist website at www.greigleach.com.  To purchase this particular painting just follow the direct link at the end of this post.  Remember this is an original work of art, so once it has been sold, it is gone.  Don't delay buy it now!
