October had quite a number of important sport moments. Mediamax Sport has selected the most interesting photos depicting them, based on Reuters reports.

Let’s start with gymnastics. 22-year-old Simone Biles was brilliant as ever in the World Championship, winning every possible gold medal.

Playing in his native Basel certainly helped Roger Federer. After winning, he shared his excitement with the ball kids. By the way, he set a record too: it was his 10th win in Basel. No other tennis player has reached that mark before.

Moving on to Japan, New Zealand and Wales fought for the bronze in Rugby World Cup. As you can see, stopping the opponent is extremely important in the sport.

This photo wasn’t taken during anti-government protests. The people on it are football fans, who held a demonstration during the Hertha – Dynamo Drezden game.

These football fans just want to enjoy the game, regardless of the strong rain and cold weather. The photo was made before the Manchester City – Southampton match.

We can’t speak of football and not mention the women of Iran. In October 2019, the 40-year ban on attending stadiums was lifted and Iranian women could openly cheer for their team.

In conclusion, another picture of sport battling rain. Victory creates emotions that beat poor weather conditions easily, so it’s no surprise the athletes are celebrating so.
