In a statement from Nike, they said the advert celebrates ” the tenacious spirit and strength of an athlete who is breaking barriers and writing her own story: Caster Semenya.”
“My first win was such a great feeling. It was a dream come true and a realization that hard work, dedication and believing in yourself no matter the obstacles pays off,” recalls Semenya. “Growing up in a small rural area, I was never told I could run, but I always knew I was born to run, to run fast and to win.”
