Greg White’s striking pictures of The Times sports writers pack a powerful punch

Walking to work at the moment involves trying to slalom around the many camera crews currently pounding the streets of London, which isn’t a great surprise given that there’s an estimated 21,000 journalists here for the Olympics. The Times has tackled this coming together with this striking set of photographs from Greg White along with some accompanying videos. The idea is simple enough – to photograph the paper’s sports writers suited and booted taking part in various athletic events – but the execution is exceptional and the results strike just the right balance between sublime and ridiculous.
