Women’s World Cup 2022
SYDNEY Women’s World Cup 2022, Australia (AP) — From start to end, we saw some incredible action throughout the FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup 2022. All of this was photographed by the FIBA’s official photographers on site – Milad Payami, Mami Yasui, and Yaroslava Nemesh – and they’ve selected some of the greatest shots to be immortalized in a snapshot frame.
We’ve given them the opportunity to display and share the tale of some of the greatest images shot in Sydney at the Women’s World Cup.
Milad Payami’s choice
“The Women’s World Cup Final has arrived! It was the game that had everyone’s attention on the floor. A packed house awaits the telling of another tale at the Women’s World Cup. I just wanted Breanna Stewart’s shot to be precisely where it was supposed to be.”
“Lauren Jackson is a legend who is revered by everybody at the Women’s World Cup. It was a fantastic comeback story! What a privilege it was to film this historic event in her last game with the national team!”
“There are certain experiences that you will never forget. Witnessing the pleasure on the faces of these incredible Puerto Rican players is something you don’t see every day, maybe even after winning a gold medal at Women’s World Cup. It’s a feeling of complete fulfillment.”
“I’ve been photographing Han Xu and her colleagues since they were adolescents, and it’s been a joy to see them develop and shine through the lens. What a fantastic moment for her and China to defeat Australia on their home court and get to the Final. That gaze towards the heavens! A new star has been born!”
Mami Yasui’s choice
“There were many lovely moments in Sydney. This one jumps out to me because Ezi Magbegor often wears a poker face throughout the games, but we can see her intense, flaming enthusiasm in this photo.”
“Jovana Nogic of Serbia had a difficult game against the United States, but she maintained her calm, hit a difficult shot, and then posed on the court at the Women’s World Cup. I had the impression that I could see her mental tenacity and her never-say-die mentality right then and there.”
“Breanna Stewart tries so hard to be a winner, and she totally stopped Ivana Raca’s shot attempt. In this frame at the Women’s World Cup odds, I could definitely feel her vitality.”
Yaroslava Nemesh’s choice
“Bridget Carleton yelled enthusiastically after a terrific game at the Women’s World Cup. The player’s passion was so powerful that it elevated not just her teammates, but the whole crowd.”
“This photo was taken after the United States’ victory in the Final. The champions’ emotions in front of the red lights of the scoreboard after the buzzer are incredible at the Women’s World Cup, and they represent another wonderful World Cup for the United States.”
“A fantastic display of team support and passion centered around a real football great. The players’ joy and emotions make it a good occasion that I will never forget at Women’s World Cup.”
