Wednesday Whim - Martin Schoeller and the Olympics

Ryan Lochte for TIME - all images via VH Artists (via Flavorwire)

I'm utterly stoked for the 2012 Summer Olympics to begin (frankly, I'm much more of a fan for the summer sports over the winter sports). In honor of the Olympics, I thought it would be fun to do a post dedicated to the hard working athletes that will represent the USA in London. 

German photographer Martin Schoeller captured some of the American Olympians for publication in TIME Magazine, ESPN Magazine and Women's Health Magazine. We get to see them as athletes outside of their competitive environment in a very intimate way (up close and personal). I'm in awe of the reality of what these athletes are capable of and seeing them in these photos makes it even more amazing.

Check out more about these images here and a "behind the scenes" video of Ryan Lochte's shoot below.
