New Nike Ad Features Joan Benoit Samuelson ’79

A new Nike commercial that “celebrates how far women’s sports have come by featuring elite athletes who defied convention—women who wanted to play so badly, they wrote their own rules,” features trailblazing 1984 Women’s Marathon Olympic Gold Medalist Joan Benoit Samuelson ’79.


  1. Dave Stocking '66 says:

    I love what Joan Benoit Samuelson stands for — the need to welcome the challenges of life with a defiant, inner roar before; a steady, focused assault during; and a peaceful, loving smile after.
