Rio Olympics: Using Momentum

Kai Kazmirek (Germany) used the power of centrifugal force and momentum to launch his shot put across the infield of the Olympic stadium.  Kazmirek is one of a huge field of athletes competing in the Men's Decathlon.  The Shot Put is the third of ten events, and the third event of the first day of competition.  Kazmirek went on to finish fourth after the first day of events.

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!
