Credits & Description:
To celebrate the start of the 2008 Olympic Games adidas presents a global print campaign called ‘Gold is not a Given’ featuring Olympic favourites Tyson Gay, Allyson Felix, Veronica Campbell-Brown, Jeremy Wariner, Yelena Isinbayeva and Haile Gebrselassie.
In February 2008, these six adidas athletes flew to Beijing – six months before the Olympic Games began.
Because as gold medal favorites they knew winning is never guaranteed. That’s why they were there in sub 0o temperatures training and familiarizing themselves with the host city. adidas and 180 Amsterdam went there to capture it. The results are iconic executions of the athletes in training.
