The 2012 Summer Olympics are here and I am so excited.  I have always loved sports and it is hard to beat the thrill of cheering your country's athletes to victory.  Especially since these athletes have dedicated their whole lives to this moment.  I love these silhouette photos taken by Paolo Pellegrin of Magnum Photos.  Aren't they fantastic?!?  These were taken in the 2008 Olympics.  He really captures the beauty of their bodies and the perfection of their skill.  Cheers to the next 18 days...Go USA!
