Cameron Van Der Burg, South Africa

Day 3 of the London Games had what for me has been the sweetest moment of the Olympics so far, when South Africa's Cameron van der Burgh dedicated his swimming gold to the late Alexander Dale Oen. I love the image in this gallery of van der Burgh lying in the pool with a competitor's arm on him.

Also, we have some great shots from water polo, fencing, diving, field hockey, basketball, indoor volleyball and dressage.
