Olympics: Catching up with the Times and more

From all I have seen (which admittedly is just about enough for an ill-formed opinion), the Times of London is standing out among the print publications in the UK this fortnight-plus. A few pages, fronts and otherwise, from the past week:

Sunday’s front page.

Saturday’s front page

Saturday souvenir poster.

Bradley Wiggins wins gold. Headline pays “trib”-ute, if you know what I mean.

Sunday’s Detroit Free Press London page. Design by Ryan Ford, who writes:

And hey, he turned his medal count up to 22, so it seemed like the least we could do was turn up the presentation up to 11 by knocking off a second or third story and our usual gizmo of what to watch at the Olympics. (Especially since the first ad of the Olympics was forcing some changes for the Sunday section anyway.)
