My real objection is to the idea that she was a Nazi and therefore can't have been a great photographer. This is exactly the same as saying that Alexandr Rodchenko can't have been a great photographer because he was a communist or that Mapplethorpe can't have been a great photographer because he was gay.

Roger,

My name is George.

You still haven't answered the OP's query?

Forget the photog, forget her background, forget her other work....

Is the particular photo one of the best sports portraits ever made?
