The Year in Photos: Sports

The Year in Photos: Sports

Every year, The Associated Press chooses a selection of photos that best documents the year’s top sports stories as chronicled by photojournalists around the world. Today, this collection was distributed by the AP to its members and subscribers worldwide. 

This year’s set of compelling and newsworthy images was selected by Acting Director of Photography Denis Paquin.

Below is a gallery featuring this year’s sports selection.
