To celebrate a summer of women kicking ass in sport, Nikewomen are set to host an exclusive exhibition at Niketown, London. The exhibition of artwork and athletes is part of Nike’s ‘Here I Am’ campaign, inspiring women to fall in love with the buzz of being a sportswoman.
The exhibition is fuelled by the launch of Nikewomen’s ‘Here I Am’ Athlete Book which pays tribute to 22 young international female athletes. Every chapter is a unique visual interpretation of each athlete’s journey, highlighting the confidence and strength they have gained through sports.
The ground floor of Niketown will present graphic, artistic and photographic imagery from the Athlete Book, taking visitors on an inspiring, quirky and humorous journey through each sportswoman’s life, emphasising her goals, ambitions and personal style. The exhibition includes diverse athletes including tennis star Maria Sharapova, Olympic Heptathlete Kelly Sotherton and record breaking England striker Lianne Sanderson.
The exhibition will run from 1st-31st September, 2008, coinciding with the perfect opportunity to welcome home some of the female Beijing Olympic athletes.
