Leading sportswear giant, adidas joined hands with young athletes from the Hi5 Foundation at St. Andrews court in Mumbai in the presence of Mirabai Chanu, Lovlina Borgohain and Simranjit Kaur, celebrating the spirit of team sport. Amplifying the narrative of ‘Impossible is nothing’ the brand created a canvas propagating the message of ‘We see Possibilities when we come together’ and celebrating team spirit and collaboration.

adidas has always been at the forefront of encouraging athletes in their sporting journey, being the driving force to push their limits and to see the possibilities where other see the impossible. Moving forward with this belief, the athletes interacted with the Gen Z players sharing inspiring stories and motivating them as change makers of the future.

“The belief my family and my coach showed in me helped me conquer all the challenges which came my way both personally and professionally, something which we see in team sport. Today, I chose to be part of this event to extend that support to these unique, powerful athletes. I want them to develop similar faith in their abilities, for this is what makes us unbeatable.”
