Olympics, Day 15: Images, images…

… just to prove that I have been keeping busy. These games have not been a real streak of victory for Finland — we have gotten two medals, both from sailing and we basically have potential for one, two more tonight in the men’s javelin. I’ve been working in London, so unfor­tu­nately no great images from Weymouth.

I have covered e.g. kayak and little bit of track — this morning I did the 50km walk race. The ending was pretty dramatic as the other Finnish compe­titor Antti Kempas was taken away with a wheelchair after a total collapse on the finishing line.

Anyway, couple of images from the days gone by.

Jenni Mikkonen paddles away after quali­fying rounds in K1 200m. She did not make it to the final.

  1. Super shot of the fellow pouring the water over his head. And very poignant shot of the kayaker Mikkonen all alone having failed to qualify. Nice work, Kari.
