Shot Put Sculpture at the US Sports Academy

Playing it up at the US Sports Academy

Our road trip takes us to the United States Sports Academy, where the receptionist lets us snap a few shots at the walls of sports-themed sculpture and artwork.

While in Daphne, there was something we just had to check out: the US Sports Academy. We had heard there was some crazy artwork surrounding the building (more on that tomorrow). But first, we had to see what this place was all about.

While we had come here for what was on the outside, this place is actually a college, where students can get a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Sports Science, or a Education Doctorate in Sports Management. But, unlike any college we’d been to before, it’s also a sports museum, with hundreds of sports-related art pieces spread throughout the building.

While we didn’t spend a lot of time inside the building, the receptionist was friendly, and didn’t seem to have a problem with me taking photos inside the building. In fact, when I mentioned I was planning on posting the photos via a travel blog, she made sure to clue me in on the shot put sculpture in their atrium.

While I didn’t want to overstay our welcome, I did manage to capture another few shots inside, as well as a couple just outside the entrance. I was surprised at how nice the receptionist was, and how encouraging she became after I mentioned I was working on a travel blog. It was kind of fun, really.

Check out the pics below, and stay tuned for the funky sculptures located on the lawns of the US Sports Academy!
