My boss managed to get his hands on a single ticket to the final day of Swimming. Since I knows this is one of my favorite sports he kindly gave the ticket to me and I set off that evening to watch Michael Phelps' last swim.
First up, I got to see the US Women take the gold in the 4x100 relay - they were amazing and so full of personality.
The second event was the Mens 1500 meters - a long event, which gave me time to snap a quick photo of the events biggest Canadian fan (who just happend to be sitting two seats from me.)
Finally it was time for the Men's 4x100. I caught this shot of Michael Phelps' about to dive in for the last swim of his career (in the middle.)
This photo is taken during the medal ceremony - I found myself imagining Michael Phelps was taking a moment to take it all in one last time.
Watching the US flag fly over the stadium and listening to the anthem was a powerful experience, one I will always remember.
