Rio Olympics: Jubilant Teammates

Lilly King (USA) went across several lanes to find and hug her teammate, Katie Meili.  King had claimed Gold in the 200 Meter Breaststoke and Meili took Bronze.  Between the Americans was the Russian, Yulia Efimova, taking Silver.  Efimova and King had been exchanging words in the press and gestures in the ready room.  King was not a fan of the Russian who has served suspension for doping in the recent past.  So there was no traditional congratulatory hand shake between the two rivals.

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.
