p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Gymnastics: Some of my favorite Olympic Moments


Wow, finally wrapped up 3 weeks of gymnastics coverage for USA Gymnastics in London. What an experience that was! As much as I'm loving it here, I am ready to come home!!!

Here are some of my favorite Olympic moments. No action shots, as I think the entire Olympic experience is more than just capturing the action. The emotional aspect of it is just as important, if not more.

I think I used every piece of gear I brought: 3 D4s, 1 D800, 14-24, 24-70, 70-200, 200/2, 200-400, 400, 600. The D800 was great for awards ceremony and team shots, you'll see why when you get to the last image of this post. I used the 400 for floor and 600 for bars and awards a few times. Imagine that, I can say I now have shot gymnastics with a 600!

Enjoy!

-John

#1 The girls on the set of Today Show getting interviewed by Savannah Guthrie after their first podium training






#2 Opening Ceremony - I shot mostly with 14-24 and 600






#3 Jon Horton consults Danell Leyva after the men finished 5th in team competition.






#4 McKayla Maroney, the best vaulter in the world, reacts after her vault during the team competition. Her score was 16.233 out of possible 16.500. Best vault I have ever capture in my entire gymnastics career.






#5 The US Women team reacts after Aly's Raisman's last tumbling pass on floor exercise, knowing they've won the gold.






#6 Danell Leyva reacts after a high flying high bar routine






#7 My photo assistants at the Olympics (when not competing, of course)






#8 First ever image of the 4 American All Around Gold Medalists in the same picture






#9 Just gotta love this guy, Gabby's coach Chow






#10 The Parliament slideshow






#11 Kate-sighting






#12 Sam Mikulak receives a big hug from his coach Kurt Golder from University of Michigan after he stuck his 2nd vault at individual apparatus finals






#13 USAG President Steve Penny cheering on from the stands






#14 The girls react to the Kellogg's Corn Flakes cereal box featuring my team picture!!!!






#15 The girls on a double decker touring London






#16 Here is the mock up of the Corn Flakes box. The final version looks even better. I literally had 5 seconds to take this shot after the team won gold. No one else has the same shot as it was exclusive to USAG backstage. Nice to be in the circle! D800 and 24-70.

John: While I'm speechless regarding your captures (thus my initial post), I do want to say that it would be easy to look at these photos without giving a second thought to how hard you worked to get them. I can't imagine what was involved, but I'll bet you worked your ass off, and I'm hopeful you feel it was well worth your effort. From where I sit, that's a big 10-4!

Great shots, John. This is a view of the Olympics that most of us never get to see. Thanks for posting.

Thanks all. Didn't mean to post an run. I posted these before I left London and just now getting around to checking the post.

Like Russ pointed out, there was a lot to cover in addition to shooting the meets. But the trip itself was well worth it, especially in the negotiation with Kellogg's on the image for the Corn Flakes box!
