Rio Olympics: A Metallic Sprint

Sorry, I went for the pun there.  Sadly the American Mara Abbott was caught inside of a kilometer left to race.  That left the three chasers, Anna Van Der Breggen (Netherlands), Emma Johansson (Sweden) and Elisa Longo Borghini (Italy) to sprint it out for the medals.  They went in that order, Gold - Van Der Breggen (making it two in a row for the Dutch in Women's Road Racing), Silver - Johansson and Bronze - Longo Borghini.  Abbott held on for fourth but there is no medal for being the best of the rest.

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  This painting and all of my Olympics artwork will be available through my artist website at  To purchase this particular painting just follow the direct link at the end of this post.
