Each year brings memorable moments and 2013 was no different.

From sailing in San Francisco Bay, to witnessing the Baltimore Ravens winning the Super Bowl and seeing LeBron James win back-to-back NBA titles amongst the best, the photographers of Getty Images Sport North America once again captured history.

With those memorable moments creating amazing photography, the photographers put together a portfolio of their work to be judged. 

Once again, the work was very strong, creating great discussions on which were the best.

Here are the winners.
