2012 Olympics: Day 4’s Most Captivating Moments [PHOTOS]

The only thing more exciting than the events themselves are the photos capturing the athletes’ most raw moments.  One photo from Day 4 (July 31st) shows a focused Michael Phelps preparing to compete in the Men’s 4 x 200m Freestyle Relay Final, and then there’s hockey player Georgie Twigg’s indescribable elation after scoring against Korea.

Whether they’re diving for a ball on the volleyball court, or almost perfectly in sync with their partner off the diving board, these magnificent photos from today’s events almost take your breath away.
