Rio Olympics: One, Two & Three

The top three places in the Decathlon were keeping a close eye on each other over the 1,500 meters of the final event.  The trio of Ashton Eaton (USA), Kevin Mayer (France), and Damian Warner (Canada) entered the final turn running in their same placings as their standings in the Decathlon.  The final event did nothing to alter the standings.  So it is Eaton successfully defending his Gold Medal winning the 2016 Olympic Decathlon.  And Kevin Mayer used his final events to finish with the Silver Medal, leaving the Bronze Medal for Canadian Damian Warner.

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!
