Victory Journal Issue 15 (Proving grounds) is available now on loremnotipsum.com. It’s where greatness is defined, will is tested, and limits transcended. We find proving grounds in Dallas, Texas, where Australian superhuman Liz Cambage is exploding stereotypes of WNBA athletes. We discover them in the dark waters of the Everglades, where a nocturnal scene of “herpers” hunt for reptiles for bounty and glory. Elsewhere in Florida, brotherhood is tested as sibling kickers vie for supremacy and sanity in an elite football family. In Ohio, proving grounds are on the mat, where wunderkind heavyweight Kyle Snyder is putting Olympic wrestling back on America’s radar. And, in a look back at legendary athletes who retired at the top of their game, we test the outer limits with a question: Where do you go when you have nothing left to prove?
Details: Victory Journal – Issue 15
Victory Journal from Brooklyn (NY, USA) is published bi-annually. Unmoved by statistical analysis and provincial opinionating, Victory is concerned with the eternal glories and ignominies of players and pursuits the world over. Calling on an elite roster of like-minded contributors, Victory provides a forum for work that is unapologetically enthusiastic and uncompromisingly personal. It encompasses oral histories and personal essays, photographs and illustrations, films and animations, embracing story-telling methods both classic and not-yet-invented. Victory speaks to an audience that like its architects can distinguish the enduring from the fleeting and is ruled, above all, by an irrepressible curiosity.
