The Olympics Wind Down: A Farewell to Arms

We've made it to the end of our Olympic Thighlight coverage and what a ride it's been. What sights we've seen on this journey together — the biceps! The abs! The well-tones calves! And now we must wait a full four years before doing it again. (Sure, there are the Winter Games, but think of all the muscle-covering layers.) Thank you for joining us through Olympic Thighlights 2012. I'm sure we have all grown as people.

Here it is. A farewell to arms (and, well, thighs).
