Ryan Lochte AT&T ad: Luck Didn’t Get Me to London, I Swam Here
Morgan Freeman/Michael Phelps Visa ad: One Hundreth of a Second
AT&T: 24 Hour Olympic Challenge
Adidas: Take the Stage
Nike: Find Your Greatness
Ragu: Long Day of Childhood
Proctor & Gamble: Best Job
A few other topics we looked at:

Michael Phelps Luis Vuitton print ad photos:
