Nike 'here i am' by Wieden & Kennedy Amsterdam

The films, created by Wieden & Kennedy Amsterdam, use a variety of animation styles, from CGI to sketched animations, to showcase the inner strengths of various female athletes.

The stories include that of a triathlete who thrives in apocalyptic weather conditions, a triple jumper who found her strength in what she thought was her greatest weakness and a 400-metre sprinter whose animated body parts engage in a struggle between mind and body.

The films will be launching on a dedicated website on 12 September.
