In an awesome tribute to these amazing female Olympians, Nike drops their new spot “Unlimited Pursuit,” which is part of their “Unlimited Campaign.”  The ad speaks volumes about the power and strength of female athletes, and how driven they are when it comes to fulfilling their dreams.

Nike said of the women in the video:

Recovering from setbacks, losses and injury, rising from obscurity and destroying obstacles to claim victory, they command the spotlight and inspire Nike to innovate to match their strength and their dreams.

The athletes include:

  • 4-time gold medalist in tennis: Serena Williams
  • 4-time gold medalist in gymnastics: Simone Biles
  • 3-time gold medalist in gymnastics: Gabby Douglas
  • Tied for most decorated female Olympian in track and field with 9 medals (6 gold): Allyson Felix
  • 2-time gold medalist & 1st Caribbean woman (Jamaican) to win 100-meters: Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce
  • Earned 1st gold medal this year with Team USA women’s basketball: Elena Delle Donne
  • Gold medalist with Team USA women’s soccer: Alex Morgan 
  • Gold medalist in women’s 4×100-meter relay: English Gardner
  • Silver medalist & European record holder of 200-meters: Dafne Schippers
  • Amputee triathlete who grew up scrubbing floors in a Chinese orphanage: Scout Bassett 

The soundtrack of the ad is Lissie’s alternative cover of Kid Cudi’s classic “Pursuit of Happiness.”
