With the end of the year fast approaching I want to put the spotlight on those athletes who provided me with numerous possibilities of putting up a fantastic athletics photo on my blog. And great athletics photos aren't always taken on the track. Athlete don't nececarelly look outstanding while in action. Over the last few months I have found some pictures of athletes that were absolutely astonishing though, not taken on the track at all. Not even in practice or in the mids of their activities as an athlete. Several athletes have been working as real, big time models after their hours. And proof has been given that some of these top runners are not only gifted athletes but also know how to work the camera. This all let to some surprising but amazing pictures of today's elite athletes.
