The portuguese photographer and photojournalist Miguel Lopes Barreira (Record newspaper) achieved third place in World Press Photo's best shots in the Sports Action category.
Barreira's photo shows Jaimes Jesus, a portuguese bodyboarder, in a middle of an aerial move, surrounded by white water. The shot was taken in Praia do Norte, Nazare, a portuguese coastal town known for its world class tubular waves.
The photojournalist got the moment on the 16th December, during a Portuguese Bodyboarding Championship.
