The problem with an Olympics is that there is too much to shoot.
Deciding what to shoot each day is a lesson in second guessing yourself and editors.
But for the most part when the time comes you follow the best story.
Yesterday was one of those days, Meaghan Benfeito and Roseline Filion were competing an the 10 metre sychronized platform competition. They were medal favourites, but, the Canadian women's gymnastics team was competing in the team all round final. The first for the nation! The paper wanted to go big on it, a double truck in sports. So I was dispatched to the gymnastics.
There was an opportunity to attempt to do the diving that started at 3 pm and try to make it to gymnastics that started at 4:30. The trip would have involved two bus rides and a trip through security and I did not want to risk missing one or two of the events.
As it stands right now I don't know if I got that double truck, Canadian athletes had a great day with a couple surprise medals, but I had a lot of fun!
