The Olympics are coming to an end. There have been tears of failure and tears of joy. There have been medals of gold, silver and bronzed hues given to deserving athletes from the Fab Five to Allyson Felix to Michael Phelps (who during the games earned more medals than anyone EVER). Yes, it was quite an amazing two weeks. What we see on our TVs are the games, the post-win interviews, and lots and lots of commercials. But there is a whole other side of the Olympics, what the games are like through the eyes of the athletes.
A wide variety of Olympians have shared their photos via Twitter including moments like attempting to eat their gold medals and falling asleep in the stands to showing off their patriotic nail art. Check out our gallery of Olympic moments, from the athletes themselves right here.
