Mud and glory I took this picture at the Mountain Bike World Cup in Fort William. This rider had just come across the finishing line and was covered in mud but it made the whites of the eyes stand out - to make the shot.
The high jump I loved this guy. He stood there with his two crutches then walked up to the bar, which sat just above his head. He walked back, thought for a minute, then dropped both crutches, hopped on one leg about five times then up and over he went - absolutely inspiring.
Charlotte Henshaw I love this picture of British paralympic swimmer Charlotte Henshaw, who, like me, used to train at the National Swimming Academy in Stirling. I took this shot one day before she started training. Initially, I had her looking at the camera but the shot worked better when she looked away. This is a powerful photo, which has made a big impact on people.
David Weir A lot of sports photography is simply about understanding the sport. When David had finished racing, I knew he would not celebrate until he had flicked his wheel around the bend. Otherwise, he would have crashed head-on into the photographers and the television camera. Sometimes you have to be brave so I placed myself on the bend while the rest of the photographers were at the finishing line. I got the celebration shot because I understood wheelchair athletics.
Jonnie Peacock With a shot like this, you know you have just around 10 seconds before the whole race is over. Jonnie was racing against Oscar Pistorius. As a photographer, you have to stay in the zone and never take your eye off the action, even after the finish - and even when the sweat is running into your eye.
