Simon Cho, John-Henry Krueger, Travis Jayner and JR Celski. YEAH.
One of the things I'm always aiming to accomplish as a sports photographer is to give others the feeling that they are there in the action.
Shot during the Senior Mens 1000m Final during Day Four of the US Speed Skating Short Track Single Distance Championships, also known as the "Fall Trials" at Utah's Olympic Oval. This particular shot contains three 2010 Olympians (Celski, Jayner and Cho) and John-Henry Krueger, the latest short track "god".
These races are extremely important to the athletes as they are used in determining the twelve (six men, six women) skaters who will be placed on the United States World Cup Team this round during the final prep season before the 2014 Winter Olympics and an important step toward making the future Olympic team.I love my job, and I'm very fond of the athletes I work with.
