Scroll down a bit on NBCOlympics.com, and you will come across four featured slideshows — three of which have to do with sports.

One is Usain Bolt posing in celebration. Another is Michael Phelps holding a gold medal. As for the only bit of female athletic representation?

Also of note, the beach volleyball slideshow includes substantially more images (90) than the ones for Bolt (19) or Phelps (22).
