This image is of fencer Azza Besbes, of Tunisia, at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. For me, it sums up what the Olympics is all about; that one moment after all those years of hard work. And getting the Olympic rings in the picture is the icing on the cake.

We had amazing up-top access which gave a unique angle of the fencing venue. The image itself came from the final qualifiers. I heard the crowd getting excited but it was hard to see the scoreboard from the cat walk. So I ran carefully across and put my camera through the iron girders of the roof. That’s how I got her, perfectly in frame, with the rings.
