Rio Olympics: Winning the Hard Way

Shaunae Miller (Bahamas) leaned a little too far forward as she tried to beat Allyson Felix (USA) to the line in the Women's 400 Meter race.  Miller fell across the line sliding across the wet rubber of the track.  Ironically, because of the fall she won the race and a Gold Medal in the Olympics.  Had she not fallen, I think Felix had the win.  It is a rough way to win, but a win is a win.  Obviously, the Silver Medal went to Allyson Felix who missed out on Gold by seven one hundredths of a second.

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!
