They are the snipers of sport. It is a job for patient people. They have to watch and wait for the moment when the magic occurs to capture it. Their photos are a work element because they give life to our words. In general they are anonymous, hidden behind a camera. Not this time, this time we have asked our four snipers to choose a photo from among thousands, a moment that has touched them especially, during the eight days that the World Judo Championships Hungary 2021 lasted. We want an explanation, the reason for their choice. We end with Emmanuele Di Feliciantonio, who did not want to choose one but two photos.
Kosei Inoue (JPN)
"It is not the first time that I have taken pictures of Inoue, but this time I had the right light. The gaze of this former champion, today a coach, conveys concentration and dedication to work. This is a classic example of Japanese discipline and the professionalism of this great man."
Jorge Fonseca (POR)
"With this second photo we can briefly define this world championship. Fonseca made us accustomed to great celebrations and demonstrations of happiness but this time we managed to capture a moment, the moment. I firmly believe that this shot will remain in the minds of judo fans for a long time."
