The Olympics has had extraordinary media coverage this year. It has excited all of us and given some of us the desire to get back on our bikes.This week’s photo speaks to me in a number of ways. Photographing sport is a discipline; shooting moving objects and moving people can be a challenge in itself, and here you see The National’s photographer Christopher Pike doing both wonderfully.
In Al Ain, Chris captures the line of sight of the former Paralympian, Ayed Ali Al Hababi, training with other hand bike athletes, the moment caught in a single frame.
