The talented Associated Press photographers once again showcase their skills in a variety of captivating images this week. From the preparations for the upcoming Paris Olympics to cricket matches in the United States, and tennis action at Roland Garros, the photographers capture it all.

One striking photo captures the Olympic rings being displayed on the iconic Eiffel Tower in Paris as people snap their own pictures during dusk. The Olympics are set to begin on July 26. Another eye-catching image shows a diver mid-flight against the backdrop of skyscrapers in Boston, part of a cliff-diving competition in an urban setting.

In a surprising sight, cricket is shown being played in the United States, with a photo capturing a moment where an Indian cricketer misses a catch during a match against Ireland in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup. Additionally, a touching moment is caught on camera as Coco Gauff and her doubles partner, Katerina Siniakova, share a kiss on the trophy after winning the women’s doubles at the French Open.

The sports gallery was assembled by Berlin staff photographer Markus Schreiber, showcasing a diverse range of sports and events captured by AP photographers. For more sports coverage, visit the AP sports website.
