@johnhuet’s long history of shooting the Olympics began with the 2002 Winter Games in Salt Lake. He’s shot every Olympic Games since, and he recently had the honor of shooting the Special Olympics. In his feature interview with @luerzersarchive, John was asked if there was any individual in sports, the arts or advertising that he particularly admires. His response, "I have a lot of respect for the people who deliver one hundred percent, the people who, at the end of the day, have given their all and left everything on the field. I see that quality in the athletes who compete at the Special Olympics. It’s that quality of real dedication that I see in many people that I admire more than admiring any particular individual.” We couldn't agree more.💥
On the court with @johnhuet at the Special Olympics. Recalling his experience he says, "The Special Olympics is really a whole different vibe. Competition is every bit as intense as any other sporting event but on a totally different level. The athletes, coaches, families, volunteers and fans are really an amazing group of people. It’s such a great event.”

Sometimes we quit training because of lack of time, tiredness, sometimes because of laziness. As soon as you stopped training, immediately looking for thousands of reasons and excuses.
But this is - the mentality of losers .... Success comes only to those, who move forward all the time and work hard.
Иногда мы бросаем тренировки из- за нехватки времени, усталости, иногда из-за лени. Как только ты перестал тренироваться сразу ищешь тысячи причин и оправданий.
Но это - менталитет неудачников....
Успех приходит лишь к тем, кто все время двигается вперёд и много работает.
Out of pure curiosity I went to a schools rugby festival in Harare, Zimbabwe after hearing that girls rugby was becoming quite a draw card at the tournament. I packed me lenses and camera so I could take a closer look at this novelty.
Just to put context to my curiosity, the first rugby players came to this country in 1890 alongside the "Pioneer Column". These well chiseled young men of British and Afrikaner extraction shared a common passion for the game with Springbok selection being the pinnacle of achievement.
It was three years short of a 100 years later that the first black man was to make his debut for the national rugby team, the legendary Richard Utete Tsimba who is inducted in the IRB Hall of Fame.
I sat in anticipation as I saw for the first time with my own eyes impassioned young ladies take to the turf on the revered Jubilee rugby field at Prince Edward a boys only school.
I am not sure what I expected to see maybe tears but I know I saw rugby with all its ingredients passion, aggression, team work, character, respect and some saucy and colorful war cries even 🙈! Best of all the rules remained the same, nothing changed. The only thing that changed was my mind, I made a mental note to self about 'rules' and my own daughter an only girl among two boys: same rules girl.👍 The grass roots of African women's rugby are growing deep on what was once hallowed turf for males only!
So in my minds eye i turned back the hands of time and imagined the shy native girls who witnessed the first rugby match all those many years ago, if they were stood here watching their great granddaughters in shorts and colorful jerseys chasing, screaming, pulling and pushing. I wondered what they would feel, I know I felt excitement and pride. It then came to my notice that the boys watching the game were very loud in cheering on their sisters and that solidified my mind-shift. I had come late to the party, the party of Africa's future without my stereotypes!
I found poem worthy rallying call in a campaign by Women In Rugby truly inspiring! "First rule: try
Second rule: try again
Life will hurt sometimes"
