As we have at previous Games, we've partnered with Getty Images again in Beijing.
In addition to providing us with some of the most powerful pictures from all over Beijing, we also have a Getty photographer on our set who has been taking portraits of the athletes that appear on our show.
Here are a few highlights. Their smiles tell the story better than any words.
