Diving Set by Bruce Leighty in Sports

Play during the quarter finals at the AVP 2017 Women’s Chicago Championships held over the Labor Day weekend at Oak Street Beach provided some fine opportunities to capture different sports images. The two-player beach volleyball teams competed in both men's and women's tournament play. The Chicago event is part of an annual pro tour throughout the country.

The 2017 tour was comprised of 14 stops that included four California venues, one each in Florida and Texas as well as several in the Midwest. The tour is seeking additional corporate sponsors locally to help sustain the Chicago stop each year.

This image, as with many of my sports images attempted to focus on the intensity and conentration of an athlete engrossed in their sport. In this case, the player had just rebounded from a dive to the sand to perform this set for a kill shot from her partner.
