LETTERS | THE POWER OF PICTURES

An athletic triumph any way you look at it

It seems erroneous for Names to report that the Sports Illustrated cover depicts “a non-sports figure” (“SI selects John Tlumacki photo for cover,” April 17). Looking at the photograph, I see an older athlete who has just finished 26.1 miles of the Boston Marathon, who was knocked down, and who then got up and finished his journey. To me, that is the epitome of athletic excellence.
