Victory Journal is a print and digital publication devoted to the intersection of sport and culture. Rather than engage in statistical analysis or partisan squabbling, Victory spotlights the drama of sport and the enduring glory of athletic pursuits the world over.

Calling on an elite roster of like-minded contributors, Victory provides a forum for work that is unapologetically enthusiastic and uncompromisingly human. Through extensive reporting, probing personal essays, award-winning photography, illustration, and original films and animations, Victory embraces both classic storytelling methods and those just beginning to emerge.

tooth & nail

A would-be boxer fights to break out of the shadow of his father’s notorious mob legacy. Legendary activist Harry Edwards opens his personal archive to tell the story behind the black-gloved fist at Mexico ‘68. A-Rod’s former lawyer buys the lackluster Venetian football team, and they actually start winning. “French Ring” protection-dogs chase down gun-toting “decoys” with precision ferocity, and the greatest checkers players in the world convene in Branson, MO to scrap it out for $20,000 in cash.
