Athletes and spectators alike know the power and accuracy of a player’s kick is critical if the team is going to send the ball into the opposing team’s net. It’s a goal that cannot be achieved without teamwork; super-fast reflexes as each player reads the situation with split-second timing and sends the ball to a more strategically placed player.
Canadian artist Greg Banning has created an energizing design of a female soccer player kicking a ball towards the viewer. Her facial expression is one of deep focus and determination coupled with absolute joy and passion for the game. The maple leaf in the background salutes Canada as host country for FIFA Women's World Cup Canada 2015TM/MC, and is bursting with pride and great expectations for Team Canada—as the team experiences every athlete’s dream of playing (and winning!) before a home crowd.
