This is an image I captured at the Olympic Stadium a few days ago.

I was looking for something just a little different from the norm, and it shows former Canadian 14 times Paralympic Champion Chantal Petitclerc.
Chantal is now a coach and mentor to the ParalympicsGB Athletics team and this was taken as she watched from the athletes enclosure as one of her team prepared for the start of the race.
I wanted to get a shot of her wonderfully painted fingernails and she duly obliged....go large for the full effect.

Well captured, what's wrong with the finger nails?

Without your own commentary this is an image that might ask so many questions but answer so few.
Very nicely arranged, Phil.
This nail painting seems to have been so popular amongst the participants at the Games.
