Victory Journal is a tabloid-sized quarterly magazine dedicated to the art and culture of sport. Justin Thomas Kay — a friend of ours from his days at The FADER whose artwork has graced the walls of our gallery space — is the Design Director, which has some pretty fortuitous aesthetic implications. The latest issue features an iconic photo spread of Muhammad Ali in his prime by Thomas Hoepker — part of a trilogy of features dedicated to the greatest of all time — along with a re-interpretation of Flip Schulke’s shoot of a young Cassius Clay swim-training session, shot by Chadwick Tyler, with Elsa Hosk standing in for Clay. The unsung journeymen get their day in the ring as well. A Tokyo Lunch follows Tokyo salary men surreptitiously swinging for the fences on lunch hour in the high-tech batting cages of the Jingu Batting Dome. The fourth edition of Victory Journal is now in rooms at Ace Hotel New York.

We traversed the rocky waters of the New York Harbor to Governors Island for a game of badminton with Recess New York in June’s first days of summer — our team played last year, too. Tomorrow afternoon, we’ll be throwing down our jock gauntlet at Chelsea Waterfront park for the 10th annual Adidas Fanatic/X Soccer Tournament. Stay tuned for shots of our blood, sweat and tears and watch us flatten our challengers with nary a glance.
