Born from the Allsport library, Getty Images Sport has over 40 years' experience in sports photography from all over the world. Our sports heritage is second to none, and we now cover over 20,000 events each year including the world's largest and most prestigious sport tournaments including Athletics, Football, Rugby, Cricket and Horse Racing, F1, Tennis and Golf.
Our status as official Photographic Agency of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and to FIFA, ensure our unrivalled coverage of the Summer and Winter Olympic Games, and the FIFA World Cup. We also partner with more than 50 of the most eminent sports governing bodies, clubs and associations such as the RFU, FIFA, the FA, Manchester United, R&A, MLB and the NBA making previously unavailable content available to our customers.
Getty Images have been the Official Photographic Agency of the IOC since the 1988 Winter Olympics, and covered 23 Summer and Winter Olympic Games since 1968. Our archive is one of the world's largest Olympic archival collections covering 47 Games from every modern Olympic Games going back to 1896. During London 2012, we provided coverage of every medal event and every sport and venue from our award-winning team of photographers.
A key characteristic of the Getty Images Sport offering is the use of leading edge technology. At London 2012 this included the extensive use of remotely controllable robotic cameras to get an array of unique angles and perspectives from locations previously out of reach, 3D images, high-resolution gigapixels and 360 degree panoramas.
