Connell's video will be part of the global broadcast of World Athletics Championships events!

From The OregonianWith track and field events, Connell says, "It’s a very simple concept. It’s how far can you go, how high can you go, and how fast can someone go.” In his video, Connell was able to emphasize the speed, the height, and balance the branding guidelines with his own concept, as he says. “All the events are inherently cinematic.”
