Today Nike Australia has announced the launch of its new brand campaign, which focuses on ‘No Turning Back’ moments in sport. The campaign calls on youth to play like there is ‘No Turning Back’ and celebrate the joy and creativity of playing sports. The campaign is about reawakening the spirit of being an athlete, to play like there’s nothing to lose and to embrace a “Just Do It” attitude. The advertisements showcase athletes undertaking seemingly impossible challenges that they have no choice but to take on. Using powerhouse athletes and sporting legends, the campaign inspires young athletes to release their inner competitive spirit.
