With 15,000 athletes from 45 countries competing in 37 sports, the 2018 Asian Games, hosted by Indonesia in Jakarta and Palembang, South Sumatra, is undoubtedly the biggest multisport event of the year.
After months of preparation, it is time for participating athletes to show the culmination of their hard work.
They will try to become the best in Asia. These athletes will showcase the best of their speed, bravery, creativity, determination and endurance in a deployment of physical and mental force contained in a plethora of actions and expressions ready to be captured by the cameras of 130 sports photographers working on the sidelines.
To capture these defining moments in sports is not easy.
In addition to the necessary equipment, photographers must also have agility, creativity, patience and persistence so that they can successfully capture the struggles of athletes as they attempt to do their best.
Split-second expressions of joy, disappointment, aggression and defense can only be captured by well prepared photographers.
In an event such as the Asian Games, there is little room for luck for both photographers and athletes. Those who prepare better themselves will succeed when the opportunity comes.
