US Olympic Team Tracking London Experience Through Instagram

by Micah Hart

Being a part of the Olympic Games is a special experience that must be hard for any participant to explain to someone who hasn’t been through it. Fortunately, through the wonders of technology and social media, the fans can at least get a glimpse of life from the inside looking out. Many of the members of Team USA have been documenting their time in London with the popular photo-sharing app Instagram, giving a nice little peek behind the curtain.

CNN.com has compiled a nice photo gallery of some of the team’s best images so far – definitely check out the whole thing as they take in the tourist sites, mingle with their fellow Olympians (like Deron Williams goofing off with U.S. track star Lolo Jones above), and prepare for the task of bringing home a gold medal for the second straight Olympiad.

I haven’t seen any Instagram photos from the Nigerian basketball team, but I imagine they look a lot like this.

  1. That’s good to see that they still have personalities. Reminds me of playing sports and traveling with the team in high school.

      • GB31 says:

        Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Oscar Robertson, Kobe Bryant (prime), Elgin Baylor. Said and done.

      • @gb31 says:

        Kobe never had a better season than what LBJ had in 2012, and he never carried his teams like James did last playoffs.

        And could we please stop ranking all those players. Have you even seen Elgin Baylor or Oscar Robertson play so that your statement has any kind of value? What about Bird, West and Olajuwon, what about Wilt Russel and Kareem?
