I'm old enough to remember the London 1948 Olympics, and I find what time can do to fit young people very sad.
Yes, time will catch up to us all. You can't live a long life without getting old. In this case, I think the camera is being very kind. If they were photographed in more of a documentary style, we might feel their age even more.

Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...
In a couple of cases there is some barely visible edge printing that confirms that it is 320 TXP.
Great link - thanks
“Photography is a complex and fluid medium, and its many factors are not applied in simple sequence. Rather, the process may be likened to the art of the juggler in keeping many balls in the air at one time!”
Ansel Adams, from the introduction to The Negative - The New Ansel Adams Photography Series / Book 2
Bookmarked. He's a great portrait photographer indeed and the treatment of the Olympian images really works with the subjects. It is interesting to note the inclusion of the rebate, which seems to be something lots of high-profile photographers are doing at the moment, with published images. An important and timely statement for anyone who cares about film.
EDIT: Scrap that, an incredible photographer all round.
