What is GREATNESS : Nike Rawdacious Collection

Written By: SportsShoes

As part of our season of Greatness, we asked four Sportsshoes Athletes In Residence what greatness means to them and what inspires each of them to greatness. Greatness is within each and everyone one of us, but what ignites it? And how can we take inspiration from what is around us to achieve it? How does the thought of greatness help everyday athletes, go on to achieve bigger and better things? You might find out GREATNESS is never achieved alone….

What does greatness mean to you?

To me, greatness means performing the best I can at all times and being the most successful I can possibly be. Running fast and winning at all times.

Who inspires you to greatness?

The athletes that inspire me to Greatness are Alastair Brownlee and Steve Prefontaine. Mostly Alastair Brownlee as he’s a double Olympic champion and I’ve had the opportunity to train with him many times so I can see the effort and hard work that goes into being very successful.

What does greatness mean to you?

Greatness to me is passion and putting in the work. It’s talent, consistency and performing when it counts. Taking any barriers in your stride, overcoming things and doing something really special.

Who inspires you to greatness?

I’m someone that draws inspiration from a lot of people, different things. Anyone who’s doing their thing, doing it really well while also being themselves is really inspiring to me. It can be truly hard to be yourself and I admire that.

What does greatness mean to you?

To me greatness is shown through your own work and commitment to achieving the goals and dreams that you have for yourself. And being able to persevere when there’s barriers to those goals, that’s when true greatness is shown.

Who inspires you to greatness?

The people who inspire me to greatness are the people around me. My friends, family and my competitors. Seeing their successes and watching those I race against run fast and win races only ever inspires me to work harder, and push myself further.

What does greatness mean to you?

Greatness to me means living in the fullness of your gifts; it looks different to everybody. For some, that means domination - being the undisputed best. But to me? It means being able to look at myself in the mirror & know I'm being my truest self.

Who inspires you to greatness?

I'm inspired to greatness by great people! It could be an amazing sportsperson like Ronaldo, a savvy business person like Elon Musk, someone being their truest self like Sha'Carri Richardson or someone doing all three like LeBron James - greatness begets greatness!
