Asics ad extols non-professional athletes

By John Reynolds,, Wednesday, 04 January 2012 12:24PM

Asics, the sports footwear and equipment specialist, has signed up non-professional athletes to appear in its global TV campaign, which focuses on the work and dedication needed to become a top athlete.

The campaign follows a review of the Asics brand, which concluded it needed to push its credentials as a "true sports" brand.

The campaign, created by 180 Amsterdam and entitled 'Made of Sport', celebrates the athlete's journey to personal victory, including their early morning and the late night training.

It is running internationally across TV, print and digital. As part of the campaign, Asics has commissioned six short films in which individuals discuss their motivation to be the best and succeed.

The advertising campaign will run in January across Europe, beginning in the UK and Germany, on channels including Eurosport.
