Olympic Portraits, Part I: American Athletes

|

Today's entry comes in the form of two separate portrait series relating to the upcoming London 2012 Summer Olympics. In Part I, below, I focus on athletes from around the United States. Many of the photos are from a recent media summit in Dallas, Texas, where members of the Olympic team posed for photographers before resuming their training. Be sure to also see Part II: Londoners, a look at the locals in the host country. [23 photos]
