Snapshots of the Real Gold: Families Watching Their Olympians
More important than the gold medal itself, is the meaning behind it. For all the female Olympians this year, like Australian Rugby Sevens player, Nicole Beck, it means that unrivaled feeling of success that comes after dominating the game. And for families, like her 3-year-old daughter, Sophie, it means the sheer pride and joy in being there to witness it all.
The New York Times recently featured a photo series that shed light on those moments of glory felt by families watching their daughters succeed. In that vein, we chose some of our favorite photos of various female athletes with their loved ones.
