Serena Williams – The Greatest Athlete Ever

Long story short: reporter asked Serena Williams how she felt about going down in the history books as “one of the greatest female athletes of all time.” She responded simply, “I prefer the words ‘one of the greatest athletes of all time.’ ” This became a quite big thing because with just a simple few words she was able to combat the subtle sexism that permeates how female athletes are treated by the media.

Two months later, Nike released an inspirational advert about Serena Williams. That ad just used a couple of words and beautiful piano music. And still, it got viral pretty fast.
