When it comes to showing patriotism, Daniele Hypolito gets bonus points for originality.

The Brazilian gymnast wore eye shadow in the colors of her flag during Sunday's qualifying session — green in the corner, yellow in the middle and a big swath of blue on the outer edge. AP Photographer Matt Dunham caught her in a moment with her eyes closed to showcase the color display.
