It has been one year since the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics, two weeks that included numerous world records and famous green diving pools.
While most of the focus has now turned to abandoned venues and costs that have now reached $US13 billion, it is easy to forget just how great the games were and the best way to recall the games is through the amazing photography.
The photos from every sport were terrific, and they captured the emotion, energy, and athleticism of the Games. That Rio is one of the most photogenic cities in the world helped, too.
Below are some of our favourite photos from the Olympics.
