Winners of the Best Photos of 2019 poll

The votes are in and the champion has been declared! Nearly forty thousand of you voted on our Instagram account over the last week or so and we have the winners today.  We brought you the FISU staff picks of 20 of the most poignant moments caught on camera through our events in 2019. Thus started the 'Best Photos of 2019' tournament, where the brackets were made up of the following categories: Moments, Emotions, Fun and Action. 

 

Here are the top photos in each category, based on votes, that automatically made our semifinals. And also, the top two that went head to head in the final.
