"Professional sport is usually thought of as a scene of acts of heroism. At the same time, there’s also always a loser in the game. I see this contradiction between a kind of heroism of that lone figure at the center of the crowd’s attention and, at the same time, that individual seems almost to get swallowed up by the spectacle itself...a kind of diminishment of that individual who’s at the center...being made very small by the spectacle."
