Rio Olympics: Keeping Cool

There are many things to manage during the triathlon, but keeping one's core body temperature down is perhaps the most important.  As these two leaders, Gwen Jorgensen (USA) and Nicola Spirig (Switzerland) run pass the aid station they dowse themselves with water.  Spirig tries to dowse and drink and the same time.  This duo has left everyone else far behind, maybe as much as fifteen seconds back.

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!
