And also these games are over for me. It was my tenth: six in winter and four in summer. Like any games, it left a deep impression and wonderful memories that I will take with me forever.

In every games thousands of athletes from around the world compete, all in search of the medal and the best performance records. Big respect for what they have done and will do in the future. Sports fans and photographers observe the great athletes impressive moments, who become legends in the heart and eyes of the people.

With 'fatigue' I chose these three photos of athletes from hundreds who, in my opinion, are icons of the sport and are legends who will remain forever in the historic games' history.

Regarding Usain Bolt, I chose this image because I think it is unique, especially because of the angle.

For Michael Phelps I thought about the power that explodes when swimming, which is really impressive. I also shot images from the front but in my opinion this expresses more.

For Mo Farah, I had beautiful images in action and with reactions at the finish line but this image gives the impression of the joy and lightness of the athlete.
