EDITORS COMMENTS
In this iconic photograph, taken during the 1995 Rugby World Cup Final in Johannesburg, South Africa, Joel Stransky is captured at the pinnacle of his career. The tension and excitement are palpable as Stransky prepares to kick the winning drop-goal for South Africa against New Zealand. As he focuses on the goalposts with unwavering determination, Andrew Mehrtens from New Zealand tries desperately to stop him. It's a battle between two titans of rugby, each giving their all for their respective nations. The image perfectly encapsulates the intensity and drama of this historic match. The crowd roars in anticipation, holding their breaths as they witness this crucial moment that will determine the outcome of the game. Stransky's kick soars through the air with precision and power, leaving no chance for Mehrtens to intervene. As it sails effortlessly between the posts, victory becomes tangible for South Africa. This single act cements Stransky's place in rugby history and etches an indelible memory into every fan's mind. Credit must be given to Colorsport photographer Stuart Macfarlane who expertly captures this extraordinary moment frozen in time. His skillful composition allows us to relive one of rugby's most significant moments – a triumph that united a nation and symbolized hope and reconciliation during a pivotal period in South African history.
