Rio Olympics: End of Discussion

Reportedly there was some argument that the American relay team didn't belong in the final.  That brought the foursome onto the track with an even bigger attitude than what carried them through there solo qualifying effort.  An effort that produced the fastest qualifying time.  So Tianna Bartoletta (USA) game out of the starting blocks faster still.   She was the first runner to pass the baton to her teammate. Allyson Felix (USA) picked up where Bartoletta left off and so it went around the track.  The team finished four seconds ahead of the Silver Medal of Jamaica and the Bronze of Great Britain.  While it was a bit rocky getting to the end of the Women's 4x100 relay, there was a Gold Medal at the finish line.

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!
