The 2016 Rio Summer Olympic Games are now history.
For 17 days, I traveled among Rio de Janeiro's stadiums, witnessing and photographing the pinnacle of sports. The photographs in this gallery were among my favorites and I hope they convey the emotions of the world's finest athletes.
Most of what I saw of Rio were through bus windows and each day as an Olympic photographer (my fourth) is a balance between adrenaline, waiting, fatigue and hunger ... but I wouldn't trade the experience for anything.
