It appears that the video app Vine may have already experienced its best weeks since its debut a year ago and being swallowed by Twitter shortly thereafter. Since the rollout of Instagram's competing video app in June, the number of people using the quirky creator of six-second loops has dwindled.
But that doesn't mean that over the past year there haven't been some great Vine maestros out there, including more than a few athletes.
From awesome to bad to awesomely bad, you can't help but be a little impressed by what six short seconds can inspire. Twitter has already established itself as a game-changer when it comes to giving fans a window into the lives of star athletes, so video apps like Vine are pushing the limits even further.
Among the Vine enthusiasts in sports, there is a group of clear standouts and reliable users of the app—athletes who are killin' it on Vine, before Instagram actually kills the app.
