It’s never been one or the other for us. Not strength or style. Pretty or powerful. We’ve always known if you look good, you play good. Our athletes are recognized not simply for what they do on the field or court or track, but for their style. 

Over the next week, we'll present six world-class athletes who inspire us for how they play and compete as well as how they bring their unique style and personalities to their sports and training. We spent some time with all of them to talk about life, work, dreams, goals, inspiration, and style.

Mood boards capture the unique style of each athlete and highlight products from the Nike Women’s Spring 2012 collection. Featured athletes include free-spirited Australian surfer Laura Enever; global icon and Team USA goalkeeper Hope Solo; Paraguayan javelin thrower/model Leryn Franco; up-and-coming British sprinter Jodie Williams; beloved American gymnast Shawn Johnson; and super-stylish British hurdler Perri Shakes-Drayton.
