An Australian archer takes aim with a Rio favela in the background.

An anguished Azza Besbes of Tunisia after a fencing loss.

Nice dig by China's Fan Wang.

Weightlifter Ayesha Shahriyar M. Albalooshi of the UAE.

Tattoos of the Olympic rings are common throughout Rio.

Great Britain's Elissa Downie gives you a sense of how narrow the balance beam is...

...Which makes Gabby Douglass all the more impressive.

France's Marine Brevet isn't too bad, either.

How about this, from Katarzyna Jurkowska Kowalska of Poland?

A good look from a Fiji fan.

Isabelle Yacoubou might have the best hair in the Olympics.

Katie Ledecky, breaking world records.

There's something exceedingly dramatic about fencing.

The emotion after a win is unparalleled, too.

How's this for strength?

Winning gold medals never gets old for Michael Phelps.

And losing is never easy for Novak Djokovic.

Good concentration from Segun Toriola of Nigeria.

And a good backhand.

Hands from Russia and Argentina.

Nice stretch from an Aussie sailor.

But not quite as nice as some backstrokers.

This can't feel good for either Judoka.

Neither can this.

Losing sucks.

Niccolo Campriani of Italy celebrates a good round. That outfit!

Handball is perhaps the most fun sport to watch on TV.

But weightlifters make the best faces.

Power.

Not a bad view from the women's road race.

Christ the Redeemer looks down upon some windsurfers.

Ipanema Beach at sunset. Luckily, the Games are only just beginning!
