Walter Iooss Jr. GOATs- The Greatest of All Time | ESPN Documentary
ESPN will debut the three-part documentary series GOATs: The Greatest of All Time on Sunday, March 7 from 8 – 11 p.m. ET. Directed by Kevin Kaufman. The series celebrates the greatest athletes of all time through the extraordinary work of America’s most iconic sports photographer Walter Iooss Jr., from his days as a prodigy at age 17 photographing Roger Maris’s 61st home run to his photographing every Super Bowl – this year’s 55th and counting.
The series features exclusive interviews with some of the world’s greatest athletes, including Kobe Bryant, Joe Montana, Derek Jeter, Tiger Woods, Joe Namath, Chris Evert, Ken Griffey, Jr., Jack Nicklaus, Caroline Wozniacki, and Kelly Slater, up close and extremely personal.
Iooss on working with Tiger Woods:
“When we worked together, he was an ultra-professional. We’d have the setups planned with military precision and I always finished early, which he knew was a sign of respect to his time; we weren’t wasting a single second.”
