Tiphosi is a combination of the Italian word tifosi (fans) and photos. As you might imagine this is an app for sports fans who like to view photos in stead of hearing what went through an athlete when he crossed the line. The app is filled to the brim with pictures from renowned photographers like our resident photographer Merijn Soeters.
Give the app a try and stay up to date with the images from the Willem-Alexander Baan.
