Sports Illustrated’s 100 Greatest Sports Photos of All Time celebrates sports like only they can, displaying amazing pictures that managed to capture the essence of sports and the athletic spirit.
With this though in mind, I guess that Sports Illustrated’s 100 Greatest Sports Photos of All Time is equivalent to a 100,000 words worth of an article, dedicated to glorifying sportsmanship and perpetuation of cultural heroes and icons. On this awesome Sports Illustrated project you will not only find icons such as Michael Jordan and Tiger Woods, but also some breath taking fragments of sports moments such as Greg Olson’s ‘headstand’ photo, Matthias Steiner’s unfortunate weight lift attempt, Referee Jack Vaughn’s gaze into the limbo, Etc.
As an enthusiastic sports fan, and I do mean ‘sports’ and not just one segment of it, I personally appreciate this project deeply. I truly believe that sports is beyond scores and statistics, the athletic spirit is something that is not measurable and the photos selected by the Sports Illustrated team manage to capture this elusive spirit. Without further ado, feast your eyes with these amazing sports moments, curated by guys who knows photos, and understand sports.
