Sportswear company adidas gave players from the Hi5 Foundation, a sport NGO dedicated to coaching young underprivileged children, a chance to meet Indian athletes, Mirabai Chanu, Lovlina Borgohain and Simranjit, at St Andrews court in Mumbai.
The three renowned athletes came together to celebrate the spirit of team sports. They interacted with the Gen Z players sharing inspiring stories and motivating them as changemakers of the future.
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.
Olympic Medallist Chanu said, "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.”
Borgohain commented, “While I am a sportsperson representing individual sport, the hard work and effort that goes behind preparing for the big day is nothing short of teamwork of family, coaches and experts, meeting these young athletes today has inspired me to propagate the message of the importance of team spirit and coming together in sport.”
Sunil Gupta, Senior Director, Brand adidas, India, said, “We see possibilities when we come together and today, along with Mirabai, Lovlina and Simranjit, we are thrilled to have brought to life an experience for the talented players of the hi5 Youth Foundation in a manner which will excite and inspire them for years to come.”
