The man who took the photo, Getty Images Director of Sports Events Michael Heiman, tells PetaPixel that the photo agency will be moving more photos than ever before at this year’s games.
“Getty Images will be capturing a record-setting 1.5 million images at the Games and sending key medal moments from camera to customer in as fast as approximately 120 seconds,” he says.
That. Is. A. Lot. Of. Gear.
