Grace and Flight at Pre Classic
Shot from the track at last week’s Pre Classic international track meet. Bodies honed to perfection, the pinnacle of sport. After so many years pointing a lens at cyclists it was refreshing to observe another form, another brand of effort, another shape of athlete.
Stacked sprinters, lithe high-jumpers, ultra-efficient middle distance runners. The best in the world gathered in Oregon.
I was most struck by the balance of professionalism and emotion; sport as a business retains the purity of its point of origination. Disappointment, elation, triumph. Elite or amateur, the core of sport lives in every athlete. Human potential amplified through motion.
