Sport is the forum where it cannot be hidden, where the feelings that are pulsing through someone’s core at a particular moment — be it good or bad, joy or pain, exhilaration or anguish, relief or regret — can be captured in a single image. Everyone knew what they felt in those moments. It was there with Mikaela Shiffrin of the U.S., maybe the greatest women’s skier of all time, sitting on the side of the course at the Beijing Olympics after skiing out in the first run of the slalom race, hiding her face from the world.
Sometimes, it works the other way. The image makes the viewer feel something as well.
