` sports week in pictures: Olympic rings on the Eiffel Tower and diving between skyscrapers in Boston

Associated Press photographers once again showcase their talents in a series of weekly shoots that range from preparations for the upcoming Olympic Games in Paris to cricket matches in the United States to tennis on the clay court at Roland Garros.

The first striking photo shows the Olympic rings being placed on the Eiffel Tower and people taking their own pictures at dusk in Paris. The Olympic Games begin on July 26.

This image is worth a double look: it shows a diver flying between skyscrapers in Boston. Why? It’s a competition in a series of cliff diving events taking place in an unusual urban setting.

Even in the USA, cricket has to be looked at twice. A photo from the metropolis of New York shows an Indian cricketer who fails to catch a ball in the match against Ireland at the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup.

An ` photographer zoomed in to film Coco Gauff and her doubles partner Katerina Siniakova kissing the trophy after winning the women’s doubles at the French Open.

The sports gallery was curated by Berlin photographer Markus Schreiber.
