Victory Journal


When does play become sport? How does participation turn into performance? Where did organized competition come from? Where is it taking us? For Victory Journal’s ninth issue, we tried to answer such questions by going back to the beginning—and in the beginning there is “Youth.” Victory 9 engages school-age amateurs, budding superstars, and traditionalist participants; surveys the athletics of city fields, college campuses, and global remotes; and explores the connection between our admiration for lives still unlived and the glory of possibility.
