Under a Zagreb Double Rainbow

Ryan Crouser in Zagreb

This is Ryan Crouser (top) of the US and Tom Walsh of New Zealand (below), the recently-minted Olympic gold and bronze medalists in the shot put warming up prior to a competition in Zagreb, Croatia, last night.

Who could resist trying to reach and capture a double rainbow?

I covered the event –which continues tonight with the main program– for IAAF.org, the website for track and field’s global governing body. If you’re a fan or interested, check it out here. More photos from last’s shot put competition are on my Facebook page here, images of each of the 11 competitors.


For the record, today’s Pics du Jour, the site’s 977th straight, were snapped in Zagreb, Croatia, on 5 September 2016.
