Emotions that don't need words!

Here we are, at the end of another adventure; the climax of a world championship that was full of powerful emotions. And it's emotions in particular that I want to talk about. Emotions have not only touched every team – both players and their staff – in this volleyball championship but also the public who have supported on TV or in person at the event.

Nobody expected these championships to be such a big success, but they were – with over four million television viewers and all venues sold out. Each building was full of fans from all over the world and during the final day in particular you could see every kind of flag, from Italian to Brazilian, from American to Chinese. And when the visiting supporters' own teams weren't on the court, fans just applauded players anyway for the wonderful show they were putting on.

The championship final saw Team America against Team China. It was an absolutely incredible match that has left me speechless. Only with my Canon EOS-1D X was I able to immortalise part of this great show and I hope my images have gone some way to communicate to those who weren't there the emotions of this experience.
