Sports photography is all about capturing the moment.
You might only get a second to do so.
The Standard's talented photographers have selected their favourite action shots of 2020.
It was a year like no other in the sporting sphere.
Many competitions ended suddenly or failed to get off the ground after the coronavirus pandemic hit Australian shores.
But, despite a mid-year lull, sport is now back in full swing.
Here is how our photographers - Morgan Hancock, Mark Witte and Anthony Brady - captured the action in 2020.
All images taken by The Standard's photographers - including the pictures in this gallery - are available for purchase at our office, 68 Kepler Street, Warrnambool, or by phone 5563 1849.
