... in a way that makes us trust and like them even more. They officially unveiled the third installment of their "You Can't Stop Us" campaign with an incredible short film, comprising dynamic split-screen footage.
Narrated by the American soccer player Megan Rapinoe, the spot celebrates sport as a source of inspiration for equality and change.
"We are never alone. And that is our strength. Because when we are doubted, we'll play as one. When we're held back, we'll go farther ... and harder. If we are not taken seriously, we'll prove that wrong. And if we don't fit the sport, we'll change the sport. We know things won't always go our way, "and the world's sporting events are postponed or canceled," but whatever it is, we'll find a way. And when things aren't fair, we'll come together for change. "We have a responsibility to make this world a better place." And no matter how bad it gets, we will always come back stronger. Because nothing can stop what we can do together. [You can't stop sport]"
Closed gyms and empty stadiums haven’t stopped athletes from pushing forward and using their platforms to help create change. Through those actions, sport shows us what an equal playing field looks like — and reminds us that a better future is possible.
“Players may be back on the pitch, but we are not going back to an old normal. We need to continue to reimagine this world and make it better,” says Rapinoe. “We have all these people in the streets, using their voices, and those voices are being heard. I ask people to be energized by this moment and not give up. I believe it’s everybody’s responsibility to advocate for change.”
