Sports picture of the day

February 19, 2009


Sports Pictures Editor Greg Bos has chosen an unusual picture from the Biathlon World Championships in Pyeongchang. Over to Greg:

I like the sense of tension, anticipation and fatigue in this picture. South Korean staff photographer Lee Jae-won captured the moment with great expressions on the faces of the two Slovenian athletes participating in a biathlon relay race.
