Up and Over

"Jorge Urena of Team Spain competes in the Men's Decathlon High Jump on day twelve of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games at Olympic Stadium on August 04, 2021 in Tokyo, Japan."

Whether it's the biggest name, a rookie, it doesn't matter who they are when they bring beauty into sport. 

During the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, Jorge Urena of Team Spain did just that as he competed in the men's decathlon high jump on day twelve during the athletics. I had photographed a similar image of a different athlete with such grace at the Pan American Games in Lima in 2019.

She and Urena both excelled at the high jump with a picture perfect form. It's something that should be text book when teaching the art of high jump.

After Urena's first jump, I prioritized his next few in an effort to make this image and it worked. It was a bit of deja vu, but a welcomed version.
