Today was, by design, an easy one.
The best piece of advice I received from other photographers prior to the Olympics was to “pace myself.” 9:00am to 1:00am is a young person’s game, especially over twenty-one days.
So I shot just one event — the Men’s 15k Free Interval Start. And it was the “Super Dario Show” from beginning to end. It’s impossible to comprehend how someone can defend a title across THREE Olympics, but Switzerland’s Dario Cologna did just that today and by an impressive margin. The other kick-butt race was by the USA’s Scott Patterson (UVM & APU). He’s had a great Olympics so far.
Tomorrow it’s the Women’s 4x5k, hopefully, the Women’s 12.5k biathlon mass start and — with a bit more luck — time on the Large Hill.
