In February 2008, six adidas athletes flew to Beijing – six months before the Olympic Games began. Why? Because as gold medal favorites they knew winning is never guaranteed. That’s why they were there in sub 0 temperatures training and familiarizing themselves with the host city.
Adidas and 180 Amsterdam went there to capture it. The results are twelve iconic executions of the athletes in training.
