The best Nike ads ever
The best Nike ads ever

Nike unveiled a new commercial for its "Unlimited" campaign, and it's all about some of the strongest female athletes in the world.

The 40 second ad features 10 women, most of whom competed in Rio: Scout Bassett, Simone Biles, Elena Delle Donne, Gabby Douglas, Allyson Felix, Dafne Schippers, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, English Gardner, Alex Morgan and Serena Williams.

"Recovering from setbacks, losses and injury, rising from obscurity and destroying obstacles to claim victory, they command the spotlight and inspire Nike to innovate to match their strength and their dreams," Nike (NKE) said in a statement on its site.

The spot is set to Lissie's cover of Kid Cudi's "Pursuit of Happiness," which is fitting considering the name of the ad is "Unlimited Pursuit."

It ends with Biles glancing over to the camera after a perfect landing.

Nike recently released another spot titled, "Unlimited Courage" featuring Chris Mosier, the first transgender athlete on Team USA. He didn't compete in Rio since his event the duathlon (running and cycling) isn't an Olympic sport.

"Nike applauds the perseverance of the world's greatest athletes and underscores a summer of sport with its 'Unlimited' campaign," Nike said on its site.
