At the launch of the new year, Huntsman World Senior Games were given one more chance to re-live some of their favorite memories of the 2012 Games through a photo contest sponsored at www.seniorgames.net. Athletes were encouraged to email the Games a photo that best exemplified the annual event that takes place each year in St. George, Utah, and hosts over 10,000 athletes.
“I was quite pleased with the number and the diversity of the photos that came in,” said, Kyle M Case, Games CEO.
Leo LeCouteur of British Columbia, Canada was the inaugural winner.
“I wanted to capture the motion of the cyclist so I took a number of shots with a 135mm lens. I ended up using a 1/30 second shutter speed,” said LeCouteur.
LeCouteur, a cyclist himself, has been riding for more than 25 years. He has participated in the Games nine times and hopes to make the journey south once again this year.
The Huntsman World Senior Games is the world’s largest annual multi-sport event for athletes 50 and over. The event offers 27 different sports and provides competetive divisions by age as well as skill level when possible.
