Top emotional photos of 2019

Continuing with our 'Best Photos of 2019' tournament that we started yesterday, today we bring you the FISU staff picks in the 'Emotion' category. Remember, the brackets of this tournament are made up of the following categories: Moments, Emotions, Fun and Action.


We have picked the top five contenders in each category and the first round started yesterday. You can head here and vote for your favourites, as the contenders battle it out within their own categories. Tomorrow, we will bring you the top five fun photos. The semifinals will be contested between the top moment versus the top emotional photo, and the most fun photo versus the best action photo. The 'champion' will be declared on 30 December. Best part is, YOUR votes decide the winner so keep track on our social channels.


Here are the top five FISU staff picks for best emotional photos of 2019.
