Too beautiful x Adidas

“Too weak. Too old. Too beautiful.” For boxer Namibia Flores Rodriguez, naysayers fuel her need to fight. For decades, she’s trained 5 hours a day – every day – in hopes to one day win an Olympic gold title in boxing. But, in Cuba, boxing is still banned for women.

Although her native nation boasts more gold medals for boxing than any other country, women aren’t allowed in the ring. Now, aged 39 and just one year shy of the official age cap, Namibia is fighting for her final chance.

Female empowerment and equal representation in sport is a message that resounds universally. Women are fighting for the right to be represented the way male athletes are. We are proud to share the story of an unrelenting athlete and the social fight she represents.

The documentary is an independent film directed by Maceo Frost and produced in collaboration with Adidas who have backed the film financially, and through impact marketing.
