Rio Olympics:Transition

With the swimming and now the cycling completed, it was time for Gwen Jorgensen (USA) to make the final transition to running.  The riders have to dismount and run with their bike to their respective gate, remove their helmets and any other gear.  The gear must be placed in the waiting box, where there will be whatever gear the may need for the run to the line.  Most riders will grab sunglasses (if the cycling ones are not to their liking) and some will pull on a hat to shade their face.  Naturally, they have shed the cycling cleats.  Those have been left attached to the pedals, and now they slip on their running shoes.

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!
