A look at some of the most arresting and inspiring images from the London 2012 Paralympics
In a spectacle featuring pop stars, fireworks and athletes from around the world, the London Games come to a close, handing off to Rio de Janeiro for 2016.
American choreographer Elizabeth Streb’s ‘extreme action’ dance group, STREB, performed acrobatic feats at several London landmarks for one day only to honor the upcoming Summer Olympics.
The flame that lights the Olympic torch all the way to London begins on the site of the first Games, in front of the 2,600-year-old Temple of Hera in Olympia, Greece. The ritual reveals itself in an intense practice session.
