August 13, 2012 12:20 am

While there has been some iconic moments in the 2012 Olympics, there are also some amazing snapshots of the athletes in action.

Take a look…

“Ryan Lochte’s puppy dog” Face

Let’s be honest, Ryan Lochte was one of the hottest Olympian of 2012. Girls who are uninterested in sports sit around and spend their time fantasizing about his wet body. Either way it was impossible to not notice the adorable puppy dog face he makes every time he’s in the water. Keep them coming Lochte, we can’t resist!

“Victory is mine” Face

Every Olympian wants to feel like they are on top of the world, just like Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France and Chad le Clos of South Africa did at this very moment. They are probably overwhelmed with so many happy endorphins that they just can’t hold in all the excitement.

“SO happy I’m crying on National TV and I don’t care” Face

So what if my mascara runs, I just won a gold medal! Lithuania’s Ruta Meilutyte and USA’s Missy Franklin could not hold back the tears. Who can blame them? Good job ladies.

“Can’t hold back my tears” Face

South Korean’s Shin A Lam and USA’s Jordyn Wieber both shed tears, but it’s ok girls! The Olympics are an emotional rollar coaster, we won’t judge.


Nothing says “I got this and I’m better than you” like a one handed clenched fist. Angelique Kerber of Germany and Angie Winstanley-Smith of Great Britain did not hold back their “take that” mentality on the competition.

“Eyes on the prize ” Face

Kasumi Ishikawa of Japan and the Netherlands’ Sanne Keizer are ready to go balls to the wall. The concentration in their faces shows they are ready to go full throttle and nothing is going to stand in their way.

“Mid foul” Face

This can’t be legal. These girls were probably screaming for the ref to blow the whistle.
