In my 'Photojournalism' collection.

While shooting the USA-USSR hockey game at the 1988 Olympics, there was a stoppage in play so I had a quick look around and found this scenario unfolding. I quickly changed the shutter speed on my 180 lens camera from 1/500 to 1/125 and was able to grab this shot.

    I have a CCCP sweatshirt from back in the day. Today, almost all under 30 year olds don't know what it means. Great photo.
