The U.S. Olympic Team Trials – Men’s and Women’s Marathon were run in Houston, Texas on 14 January 2012. The top three finishers in each division were selected for the 2012 U.S. Team for the Olympics in London. Men’e winner was Meb Keflezighi. Women’s winner was Shalane Flanagan. Conditions were ideal; about 38º at the start, clear and still.
The World Equestrian Games are conducted every four years. Competition in this largest of equestrian events took place at The Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, KY. from September 25 – October 10, 2010; the first time the event has been staged in North America. The location was very familiar as I had photographed The Rolex Kentucky 3Day Event there for twenty-one years.
