Gr8at: Best Sporting Photographs of 2015

As 2015 comes to a close, it presents the opportunity to look back at some of the phenomenal sports that have been occurring throughout the year. I wanted to share my eight favourite images from the sporting world, as seen from a wider number in this feature by The Daily Mail. Β If you are a fan of sporting photographs you should definitely check out my two previous posts, on the best black and white and colour sporting shots.

Great sporting photographs olympic stadium

The Olympic Stadium certainly saw some spectacular moments during London 2012, but this stunning photograph of France’s Renaud Lavillenie in the men’s pole vault shows the magic still lingers even three years later.

David Noonan

As one of the oldest sports, horse racing can also be one of the most dangerous, as this superbly timed shot of jockey David Noonan demonstrates.

Tania Cagnotto

As competitive as elite level sport is, it also provides the opportunity for some beautiful images, such a this one of Tania Cognotto of Italy in the 3m springboard semi final in Russia.

Austin Dillon crash daytona

Racing at high speed is always going to be dangerous, and it doesn’t take much to go wrong for there to be such a potential disaster. With such a incredible pile up, it’s quite astonishing that NASCAR driver Austin Dillon and those around only suffered mild bruising.

Richard Stearman Wolves

It’s not always glamorous being a footballer, as demonstrated by this well-captured shot of Wolves’ Richard Stearman during an FA Cup tie against Fulham.

Bradley Wiggins fast cyclist record

With four Olympic gold medals, a Tour de France victory and a knighthood, Sir Bradley Wiggins is almost superhuman. His successful attempt at breaking the hour cycling attempt was therefore perfectly expressed.

Mercedes Nico Rosberg

This photograph of Nico Rosberg during pre-season testing at the Circuito de Jerez in Spain displays a different side of the high-octane Formula 1 world.

Dillian White Anthony Joshua boxing

If football referees thought they had it bad, this snapshot of Anthony Joshua, Dillian Whyte and the unfortunate Howard Foster reminds us all otherwise.

    • So glad you liked them. I really did want a nice balance and eight different sports covered. The guy from the snow picture’s night got worse as they lost on penalties in the end. You’d have thought they’d call it off!
