Neiman has created an imaginative vision of America's 1984 gold medalists. Juxtaposed against a panoply of vividly painted national flags and a sprawling Los Angeles at the bottom of the composition are America's own golden athletes in action-- leaping, diving, swimming, running, etc. Specifically depicted are: Greg Louganis- executing one of his graceful and award-winning dives. Steve Hegg- cycling for the Gold Tiffany Cohen-splashing her way to victory Edward Moses-coming off a hurdle as quick as mercury Mark Breland- furthering his knock-out career by doing his best Joan Benoit- a champion of endurance and tenacity Evelyn Ashford- courageously recovering from hamstring injuries and brilliantly maintaining her sprinting superiority Mitch Gaylord- soaring in the upper right part of the image Carl Lewis- star of the Olympics, seen completing his classic jump in the center of this image. Lewis truly measured up to his own and his country's expectations Mary Lou Retton- America's sweetheart and the darling of the games- displaying her explosive power and graceful movements.
