Victory Journal Issue 9 is out now. When does play become sport? How does participation turn into performance? Where did organized competition come from? Where is it taking us? For Victory Journal’s ninth issue, we tried to answer such questions by going back to the beginning—and in the beginning there is “Youth”. Victory 9 engages school-age amateurs, budding superstars, and traditionalist participants; surveys the athletics of city fields, college campuses, and global remotes; and explores the connection between our admiration for lives still unlived and the glory of possibility.
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.
