The perfect Father’s Day gift!


Wondering what to get for that sporting-mad man in the house?

It’s easy – Gallo Images and SuperSport have collaborated to produce a South African sporting extravaganza with “South Africa’s 100 Most Famous Sports Photos” book – a tapestry of the golden moments of South African sport in the last 50 years.

Springbok World Cup winning Captain John Smit had this to say about the book:  “With a nation so passionate about its sport and its sports people this book gives us a chance to see the passion, tension, delight and sadness that goes into playing sport at the highest level for your country in just one photograph! These are the images that words could never do justice to! Enjoy!”

Proteas captain Graeme Smith was just as glowing: “I had the opportunity to preview this book and it is filled with some very special sporting moments spanning from my childhood through to my professional career as a cricketer.  Sport has the ability to evoke such emotion and these pictures are a credit to our talented photographers and dynamic sports stars that have represented our country.”

The book is a collector’s dream and will bring back many happy memories of great South African sporting moments. Containing over 100 photos of South Africa’s most famous Sports Stars, it is the perfect coffee table book or addition to any sport fanatic’s collection.

Iconic sportsmen like Gary Bailey, Bryan Habana, Jacques Kallis, Chad le Clos, Charl Schwartzel all adorn the book, as do SA’s Olympic heroes such as the “Oarsome Foursome” who won gold in London in 2012.

The book will hit the shelves in early June and will be available at all booksellers, including C.N.A, Woolworths and Exclusive Books. It retails for R295 (recommended price). An eBook pdf format is also available on www.galloimages.co.za and will retail for R99.*
