The 2012 Summer Olympics in London are officially open and the world’s best athletes are competing for gold.
But those aren’t the only great athletes. We have great athletes all around us, on the Little League field, on the local swim team, playing tennis at the local community court and everywhere we look. These athletes may be the next Olympians or they may just be good athletes. We want to celebrate them and their achievements.
This week, we asked and you uploaded all these great pictures of local athletes. Now it's your turn to say which picture is best.
All the pictures are numbered in the caption area. Please vote by giving the photo number in the comments below. We'd also love to know why you think that is the best photo, but all we need for the vote to count is the number.
Voting will end at 9 a.m. Monday. So get in your vote. One vote per person, please.
Preview: Next week's topic is summer, so if you have that great picture that just says summer to you, find it and check back Monday to upload it.
This is part of Patch’s summer Picture of the Week series, where we ask you for your best pictures on a certain topic each week. We love seeing the pictures you've shared so far and are looking forward to more. The winning submission will get a Patch prize pack, which includes a very soft Patch Tshirt, a baseball cap and maybe some other Patch stuff, but more importantly, you’ll get bragging rights.
We’ll be taking photo submissions each week from 4 a.m. Monday through noon Friday.
