It is a powerful reminder to the world that sport will be back and will feel incredible. When it returns, we will be ready.
Using a script read poetically by NYC rapper Princess Nokia, who delivers the powerful ‘We will ___ again’ device. Adidas Instagram stickers have also been created, inviting people to post online about what activity or sport they’re looking forward to experiencing again.
