Victory Journal is the new refuge of the true sportsman. Unmoved by statistical analysis and provincial opinions, Victory is concerned with the eternal glories and ignominies of players and pursuits the world over. From sumo wrestling to nautical jousting, 80s icons to Olympic hopefuls, Victory unearths the sublime joys of the sporting life through reportage and oral history, photography and illustration. Calling on an elite roster of like-minded contributors, Victory provides a forum for work that is unapologetically enthusiastic and uncompromisingly personal. It speaks to an audience that like its architects can distinguish the enduring from the fleeting and is ruled, above all, by an irrepressible curiosity.

In this issue:
Victory Journal 16 explores the twin forces of RISK & REWARD. We dive into the noir-ish case of “Madam Ram,” the first-ever female owner of a major sports league, cast as devious and dangerous for her control over an all-male organization and ultimately accused in the case of her husband’s death. We find co-ed heavyweights in kilts hammer-throwing in the Scottish Games. We meet the power couple of squash in Egypt, dominating the game as husband and wife. Mexicans in Tultelpec light the running of the bulls on fire with their notoriously lethal fireworks festival. And reformed bank robber Nick Gage starts life anew with an unstoppable career—in death-match wrestling.
