1975 Photo Contest, Sports, Honorable mention

Ken Regan


30 October, 1974

Muhammad Ali floors world heavyweight champion George Foreman at the 'Rumble in the Jungle' in the May 20 Stadium in Kinshasa, Zaire (now DR Congo). The 1975 World Press Photo jury wrote about its decision to award an honourable mention to this photo in the 1975 yearbook: 'While most good pictures are the result of freezing a moment in a sports event, this one is an exception. It has been skillfully planned and composed. Although the exposure was triggered off by remote control, the result is technically brilliant and captures the climax of the fight in an original way.'
