Tonight I board an airplane to make my way to cover my third Summer Games.
While I look forward to the challenge, I worry about the assignment. Just like and athlete before a big event I feel the butterflies.
Here are some of my favourite pictures from my two previous Olympic experiences, Sydney 2000 and Beijing 2008.
Some of the pictures are not the greatest but they are special to me.
