What a shot! 32 amazing sports photos : CNN

i love photojournalism . Some of the best and most telling pictures are from war and conflict ridden zones. But sports also makes for good photo journalism. As children one would collect pictures of sports stars from sports magazines. Some times on reading a sports report and analysis in news sprint, one wondered ” How much of this perception is actual play of events or the writer’s perception” or do writers ”  project their own fear in a report”. I sometimes felt so. So rely on pictures and they never lie 🙂

Some of the aerial pictures are brilliant like ” Hurdlers leave the blocks during a 60-meter race Friday, March 7, at the IAAF World Indoor Championships in Poland.”, ” An aerial view shows cross-country skiers climbing a hill during the 46th Engadin Ski Marathon near the Swiss mountain resort of St. Moritz on Sunday, March 9.” or ” Argentine swimmer Macarena Cevallos practices her backstroke Friday, March 7, at the South American Games in Santiago, Chile.”….

I loved this CNN pictorial album. My favorite one is ” Japanese skier Takeshi Suzuki competes in the men’s downhill event Saturday, March 8, during the Paralympic Games. Paralympic Games are being held in Sochi, Russia, in the same venues as the recently completed Winter Olympic Games.”… How do you ski downhill on prosthetics..

Hope you like these pictures. Have a lovely day! Thank you!
