If there's one thing better than watching famous athletes perform in the sporting arena, it is probably running into them close up and having your photograph taken with them. My Olympics-attending companion scored a couple of direct hits in the celeb picture stakes during the London 2012 Games. And a few others that might not have been quite so high profile, but were still worth a picture.

basketball star: the gracious Lauren Jackson.
|With 'Bob', the friendly Vollie. |
Somewhere in East London.
|Well, OK, we didn't meet her, but we saw her.|
Married-in royalty watching the Men's Gymnastics.
|And some real stars of the show, seeing the crowds on their way home |
after the Closing Ceremony.
