See more scenes from the final week of the Olympics.

My favorite part of these Olympics is the camaraderie of hept- and pentathletes.  No sulking or prim disappointed half-smiles.  I like to think that if you spread the competition across a bunch of disciplines, athletes know exactly when, how and why they lost or won.  No animosity between such an exclusive group.
