Top moments of 2019 in photos

Sometimes the best way to tell sports stories is through photos. This was very much the case for university sports in 2019, as some of the most poignant moments were caught on camera through our many events. Here are some of the best ones, picked by FISU staff, but of course with a sporting twist. Starting today, we are kicking off a 'Best Photos of 2019' tournament, where the brackets are made up of the following categories: Moments, Emotions, Fun and Action.


What we have done for you, is we have picked the top five contenders in each category and the first round starts now. To vote, head here and pick your favourites, as the contenders battle it out within their own categories. Tomorrow, we will bring you the top five emotional photos and so on. 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. Without further ado, here are the top five FISU staff picks for best moments of 2019.
