Under Armour | Director: Björn Rühmann | Production Company: Smuggler | Producers: Adam Evans, Trine Pillay | Colourist: Toby Tomkins

New campaign for Under Armour featuring the inspirational Yusra Mardini. The Syrian athlete had to leave her family behind after the swimming pool where she was training in Damascus was bombed. Yusra was crossing the mediterranean Sea when the engine on their boat began to fail. She jumped into the water along with her sister and two other swimmers, and dragged the boat through the water for 3 hours before reaching the shore. She saved many lived that day including her own. Yusra went to compete at the Rio Olympics and is now a UHNCR ambassador.
