Favorite photos from Paralympics Track Cycling World Championshps

The Paralympics Track Cycling World Championships was the first time I’d ever shot an international competition. It was exciting to see top athletes from around the world coming to our local velodrome to compete and set world records.

This first photo is of Damian Alfonso of Cuba, who was severely injured when he tried to retrieve a kite caught in power lines. He simply rests his arms on the handlebars.

This is Craig Griffin, coach of the U.S. Paralympic Team, urging on Aaron Jacob Trent.

The Chinese team was young and enthusiastic. The entire team came to the rail together to cheer on their teammate.
