Paul Robert's photo of Murray is the 2012 photo of the year
Jan 7th Jan, 13
After the year 2012 produced thousands of pictures, 20 made the 2012 photo of the year final and there could only be 1 winner. Over the past few weeks Pentathlon fans across the globe have spoken by submitting thousands of votes, which was a record, for UIPM to select picture 19 (photo on the left) as the 2012 photo of the year with an astonishing total of 51% of the votes. The photo was taken by Paul Roberts, during the during the London 2012 Olympic Games. The photo is of Samantha Murray (GBR) who is showing her pure emotion after winning a fencing bout which put her on track to win silver in London. This was even more emotional for Murray, as she lost her first 7 bouts in the Copper Box, so every hit was so valuable. In addition to winning the covered award, Paul also grabbed 2nd with photo 14, which shows Amro El Geziry (EGY) celebrating breaking the Olympic swimming record at London 2012. Roberts stated the following after he received the news: "What a year it's been, and to win the photography competition is a fantastic way to end it. Telling the Olympic story of modern pentathlon was an amazing ride, from chasing the torch around the country, to the awesome spectacle of the athletes marching into the stadium, to the small children having a go at fencing at the Come and Try it sessions in Victoria Park. But of course trying to capture the drama, excitement, euphoria and despair of the Olympic finals was the realisation of a life long goal. The images I got of Sam celebrating getting her fencing back on track, captures a small part of the drama that unfolded in the Copper Box. Only as the day went on did the significance of that victory celebration become clear! It was a roar only beaten by the crowds roar a few hours later when Sam ran back into Greenwich Park in the silver medal position! Thank you to everyone that voted for my photograph, and to Matt & Pete for the laughs, support and encouragement throughout two very long days and two incredible weeks. Modern Pentathlon is such an exciting sport to photograph, and I hope I get the chance to do it again this coming season." The centerpiece of the photo, Samantha Murray stated: "It's a real honour to have been voted as picture of the year by the public and pentathlon fans. I don't think its the best photo, but it reflects my determination to win an olympic medal. I hope it can inspire some young athletes to follow their dreams. Most of it's really cool that people voted, thank you to everyone who took part and also for Paul Roberts for his great images from this season. I can't remember what I was thinking when this image was taken, but I know that I was in fierce fighting mode and wasn't going to give anything away after coming back from a 7 defeat start." UIPM is looking forward to more exciting photos like this in 2013 from a number of photographer around the world. Get snapping!
