With "MADE OF SPORT", ASICS are launching a new European TV, Print and Digital Brand Campaign based on the idea of True Sport.
Kiharchiro Onitsuka, the Founder of ASICS had a simple philosophy -- that sport could help make the world a better place because it trained both a person's mind, as well as their body. He knew that one of the best ways to educate the younger generations intellectually, morally and physically was through sport. To Mr.Onitsuka, this was True Sport.
Since the days when Mr. Onitsuka developed this belief athletics have become more competitive and commercialised, but True Sport remains a transformational force for athletes at all levels. In fact, it's "True Sport" that elite and everyday athletes have in common. While they perform at different levels, distances, and times, what they share is a realisation of Sound Mind, Sound Body and an authentic belief in True Sport principals.
The campaign celebrates the True Sport athlete's journey to personal victory. It celebrates the early mornings and the late nights his commitment requires, above and beyond his daily responsibilities.
The campaign rewards the athlete for his ambition to set his goal and his dedication to achieve it. It honors these athletes who respect one another and cherish the challenges, demands, passion and dedication that keep them pushing for rewards more noble and valuable than fame and wealth.
ASICS are reclaiming the idea of True Sport amplify its noble meaning and message, and attribute it to the rightful everyday athlete who demonstrates the dedications, sacrifice, and commitment to its cause. The campaign seeks the audience to ask themselves if they too are made of the dedication, commitment, passion and teamwork that a True Sports athletes exhibits, asking the audience 'ARE YOU MADE OF SPORT?'.
