ANSA Sports Pictures of the Year (2007)

After the Reuters (RNPS) Best Sports Pictures of the Year, it’s time for another news agency to make its Top Pictures-Ranking for 2007. This time it’s ANSA, the main Italian press agency.

From the book “Ansa Photo 2007″, La Gazzetta dello Sport has made a selection of all the images tied with sports. I have selected the Best 30 Pictures from their feature article. So, without further ado, here’s a selection of the Best Sports Pictures of 2007 by ANSA (Agenzia Nazionale Stampa Associata).

Enjoy, and HAPPY NEW YEAR! :grin:
