Highlights From The Rio Olympics

Every other year, the spectacle of the Olympics captures the attention of people from every corner of the globe. This year, we were treated to the Summer Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where record-setting swims, incredible gymnastic feats and the world's fastest man entertained us for over two weeks.

The action on the tracks, balance beams and diving boards wasn't all that went on, though -- events like the Olympics take plenty of time to prepare and maintain.

Take a look through the gallery below to see some of the best behind-the-scenes shots from the Summer Games, including some oddly -- but conveniently -- placed television screens, the dozens of workers who cleaned up wet tennis courts and the curious animals who decided to call the golf courses home.

2016 Rio Olympics - Artistic Gymnastics - Preliminary - Men's Qualification - Subdivisions - Rio Olympic Arena - Rio de Janeiro, Brazil - 06/08/2016. Kohei Uchimura (JPN) of Japan falls as he competes on the horizontal bar. Dylan Martinez: "I first photographed gymnastics at the Athens Olympics in 2004 and I've been fortunate enough to shoot it at the further three Olympic Games and half a dozen or so world championships. And really, I feel as though I'm only just starting to understand the sport. It's about beauty, strength, endurance, bravery but most importantly, technique. Japan's Kohei Uchimura has it all. He's without doubt one of my favourite gymnasts to photograph. He takes it to another level. Especially the bravery. Here Uchimura fails to hold on to the high bar but in the next frame he gets up, dusts off the chalk and starts again." REUTERS/Dylan Martinez FOR EDITORIAL USE ONLY.
