Olympic ATC

This is another one of those pieces of art that "emerged." I started out with a 4x4 Olympic collage. My friend Sarah is hosting a challenge to create something Chinese or Olympic related so I was working on that. I had all my pictures laid out for the 4x4 and was pleased with it. I then laid a piece of red, white and blue vellum over it to see the effect. Well, it stuck and that was that. I then had to pare this down to ATC size because the vellum did not cover the whole piece. But it kind of blurred the lines of the collage and if you look closely you can see red stripes. The blue star is not so easily seen.
At this point it was too small to add anything to it without covering up the remaining Olympians. So I left it at that. Can you identify any of these American Olympians?

WOW, Louise. This is just awesome! The vellum overlay is the perfect finishing touch. I'm out of gold metals so you'll have to settle for a gold star!!!
