“World class athletes don’t train purely for training’s sake -they train because it helps them get better at their sport. They play football, basketball and tennis and tailor their training to make them better at what they love doing. And because they play to win, they train to win,” comments adidas on the promo campaign.

The athletes include Leo Messi, David Beckham, David Villa, Derrick Rose, Dwight Howard, Kaka, Nani, and Andy Murray. The sporty men showcase the different ranges of the training-specific footwear and apparel from adidas.
