Traditional athletic stereotypes need not apply.

In today’s society, typical representations of athletes look more like NFL players than everyday people. For the second issue of Klipsun, we decided to break open this stereotype and show the face of people whose participation in sports is anything but predictable.

It is tradition that the second issue of Klipsun is a themed one. Though sports are something a variety of newspapers and magazines cover, Klipsun had yet to fully explore them, until now. What we found was a handful of people whose desire to participate was fueled by a passion for their sport that had nothing to do with fame or fortune. Each story has an inspirational undertone and shows that being an athlete can strengthen both body and mind. So enjoy this fall issue and remember that athleticism is relative.
