Victory Journal


Victory Journal’s extra-sized 10th anniversary issue explores the multifaceted concept of “Trials.” The issue bounces around the world, jumping from the story of a scientist-turned-pinball-champion in the Bay, to a patchwork oral history of London-based athletes with deferred (and quite possibly canceled) Olympic dreams, to a gory celebration of rattlesnake wrangling in the small town of Sweetwater, Texas. Victory Journal #18 also looks at the high-stakes world of bike racing in Japan, small town rugby traditions in the UK, the rise of the next great soccer superstar Deyna Castellanos, the dangerous lives of the coast guard rescue team at the mouth of the Pacific Ocean, the pastel-hued, soft focus gymnastics paintings of Thenjiwe Niki Nkosi, and much more.
