Beyond the scores and stats, sports also give rise to stories of athletes who overcome obstacles, exhibit sportsmanship and defy the odds to achieve success. We’ve chronicled many of those stories, and now we want to hear from you.
What inspires you? Submit photos of the persons, places or things that lift you up using Twitter (upload photo, and tweet at @SINow with the hashtag #keepgoodgoing) or Instagram (upload photo, post to @sportsillustrated with the hashtag #keepgoodgoing).
Submissions can be made through 12/14 at noon. Selected photos will be featured in our "Inspirations" gallery on 12/15.
