Jessica Ennis came second but AP pic is a winner
A brilliant picture by the Associated Press photographer Kevin Frayer of Jessica Ennis landing in the long jump at the World Championship in Daegu made the front of the Guardian and Independent today.
The British athlete may have come second in the heptathlon and lost her world title but the picture is a winner.
Frayer is based in Delhi as the AP's chief photographer for South Asia. He started his career in 1991 as a photographer for the Canadian Press and his first assignments were in Yugoslavia.
From 2003-2009 he was based in the Middle East. Frayer's photographs of Palestinian protesters caught in a tear gas assault won a prize from the World Press Photo awards in 2009.
