“To dream big requires courage.” – @iremyamany ⠀ Imagine loving your sport so much that you go a decade without winning a tournament and still don’t quit. Then, one day, you win. And then you win again. And again. And again. That’s how Turkish Taekwondo fighter Irem Yaman finally earned the nickname #Goldhunter. During one of her training days, she shared how those years of sacrifice and loss weren’t always easy. But they were worth it. See Irem’s full story on @nike IGTV #justdoit
“It’s in women’s nature to be strong.” – @yasemin.adar ⠀ Before Turkish wrestling champion Yasemin Adar became the best, people had more to say about her looks and her lifestyle than her talent on the mat. But she kept practicing. Kept working. Kept winning. At the National Wrestling Club in Istanbul, she shared what she wants for the future of her sport, and showed what true power looks like.

3107 Pico Boulevard. ⠀ It was here that Nike’s original crazy dream came to life. Under the title “Blue Ribbon Sports,” a runner named Jeff Johnson stopped selling shoes out of the back of his van and started meeting athletes in our first storefront. ⠀ Johnson’s job was simple. Take orders, give advice, and always listen to the athlete. It didn’t matter if they were chasing a PR, a state title, or a world record. The doors were open for any and all as they fought for crazy dreams of their own. ⠀ This week, we continue that tradition. More than 50-years later, we’re back at the same address with the same mission: To serve runners. ⠀ One of those runners is 14-year-old Los Angeles native @sp3ncer.young. Her crazy dream? To take gold, almost ten years from today, in her own backyard. ⠀ ? on for her story. #justdoit
“We live in a time where everything should be possible, but you have to fight for change.” – @zeina.boxer ⠀ German boxer Zeina Nassar didn’t start out looking to change the rules, but when she saw that women like her weren’t allowed to wear hijabs while competing, she made it her mission to do exactly that. Now, she’s fighting to change the rules internationally, so all women can experience the power of sport. See Zeina’s full story on @nike IGTV #justdoit
“I don’t wanna be just some other boxer with a good story. I want to be known as a great boxer.” – @somaliboxer ⠀ A lot can be said about British boxing champion Ramla Ali’s past, but it doesn’t define her. In an old local’s gym in East London, she shared what challenged her yesterday, what inspires her today, and what she’s fighting for tomorrow. ⠀ See Ramla’s full story on @nike IGTV #justdoit
