2012 Summer Olympics: The last sport to post from The Games - Men's Field Hockey

Yep - this is the last post with a sport from the London Olympics. I still have some night shots (including some taken from the London Eye) and, of course, the Closing Ceremonies. I will be busy editing those on the plane tomorrow, since I have 10 hours to get caught up, so look for those in the days to come.

Here are some shots that I took of the men's bronze medal game of field hockey.

I saw this guy and thought that he was going for that 70s look, with the headband and sun block on the nose. :)

A penalty corner shot.

A big shot from outside...

...which was deflected in front of the net for a score. This point for Great Britain evened the score against the Aussies at one a piece.

A big celebration fro Team GB.

A whole lot of defense in front of the goalie.

I know that this is not an action shot, but it is my favorite from the day. It was another corner shot, and I had prefocused on the ball. With the London Olympic logo perfectly centered, the athlete walked over and put his foot on the ball. Click! Love this one.
