NIke + Olympic Track & Field Trials

I had the privilege of photographing for Nike last weekend at the Canadian Track and Field Championship and Rio Selection Trials here in Edmonton. Nike had a tent set up at the event where they were promoting their new LunarEpic Flyknit shoes that Customers could test out on the treadmill. Throughout the day select individuals were chosen to take part in a VIP running session on the track with a Nike running coach. I also covered the media session where Nike sponsored athletes who had qualified for Rio came to pick up their Olympic uniforms and Nike swag. All of the athletes were very humble and thrilled to be representing Canada at the 2016 Olympics. Many were in still in shock and coming to terms with the gravity of their achievement. This is an experience I won't soon forget!
