Default Dalilah Muhammad (USA) wins the Olympic women's 400 m hurdles

The Rio Olympics have given rise to literally millions of images, probably tens of thousands being "published". But I was somehow particularity taken by this one:

Muhammad was first off the blocks, first over the first hurdle, and first all the way.

Best regards,

Doug

Indeed. A strong image.

Here is another one, for sport as well as politically within the U.S context and that of France!

I like how there is movement in the legs but not upper body. Great shot!
