adidas today premiered a new series of films underlining adidas’ leadership and passion for sports.

It is exciting and inspiring to be part of a larger group of women who share this same creative mindset.”

The “I’m Here to Create” film series brings to life authentic stories of real female athletes, who show the world the numerous ways in which they embrace creativity to tackle challenges, defy conventions, express themselves and fuel experimentation.

Through “I’m Here to Create” adidas will empower athletes across the world to declare how they bring creativity to sport.
