Following in the footsteps of Alisha's post from two days ago, I'll be posting one of my images from the Oregon vs Baylor acrobatics and tumbling meet that took place in Eugene, Oregon on February 13th. This is one of my two favorite shots from that meet. The fierce discipline and concentration of the athletes is why I enjoy photographing sports. It's incredible to see them push the limits of what humans are capable and do so with such intense self-control. Capturing their actions via a camera and lens seems seems rudimentary by comparison.
