Faces of triathlon

A few more pictures taken at the 2010 Aviva Ironman 70.3 in Singapore, on 21st March 2010. Sport portraits, if you want, bearing in mind the obvious: these are not portraits taken in a studio, with makeup and lighting designed to enhance the model's features. These pictures were taken hours into a triathlon race, when the athletes had already a long swim and many miles of cycling on their back and, most importantly for a portrait, on their faces.

Hi Claudio,
I love #0640 pic.
You sure captured his serious face.
Nice shot! Thanks for sharing this.

Thanks. Athletes are not fashion models, and the appearance of an athlete will necessarily be gritty, tired, sometimes deflated, but ... one thing you will always find in their eyes is focus, intensity, will to push themselves beyond their limits. That's why I like taking sports pictures.
