10 best sports photographs of 2015

Here’s Ken Mainardis, Vice President Sports at Getty Images, on the sporting images that made 2015 unforgettable…

"The IAAF World Athletics Championships in Beijing, Rugby World Cup and iconic annual events like Wimbledon, the Golf majors and Super Bowl are just some of the events that delivered memorable moments in 2015 - in which elite athletes pushed themselves to their physical and mental limits and had us screaming from sofas and stadiums alike.

"It is the sports photographers’ job to capture this super-human behaviour and immortalise it for the fans for all-time. As the Vice President of Sport at Getty Images, I am privileged to work with a team of award-winning photographers – all experts at the top of their game – who spend their lives capturing these defining moments of desperation, exhilaration, triumph and defeat.  It is their sheer talent, passion and experience that allows these photographers to capture these moments that might otherwise be missed. This gallery showcases some of the best sports images of 2015, images which take the viewer from their seat and into the action."
