Inspiration: Get active with Daley Thompson

Olympic legend Daley Thompson and Rio 2016 Olympians Charley Hull and Chris Mears are brilliant examples of everyday people chasing their dreams, no matter the obstacles in the way. Indeed, that’s what they are encouraging everyone of all ages and abilities to follow.

The motivational campaign aims to encourage people of all ages, abilities and passions to find the strength to chase their dream and overcome the obstacles they face on life’s journey. The 'Chase Your Dream, No Matter What' campaign brings to life Bridgestone’s goal of keeping you safe and on track for life’s journey - just as Bridgestone’s tyres do on the road.

The Bridgestone ambassadors who against the odds, realised their dreams are double Olympic decathlon gold medallist, Daley Thompson. He was accompanied by diver Chris Mears who secured his first gold at the 2016 Olympic Games Rio 2016. Then there is golfer Charley Hull who finished seventh on her Rio Olympic Games debut in Rio.

Double Olympic gold medallist and decathlete Daley Thompson said “My upbringing and sporting career have taught me that if I work hard enough and remain focused, then I can achieve my goals. I would like to think that I’m a living testament to the Chase Your Dream, No Matter What philosophy.”

Olympic gold medallist Chris Mears added: “I believe really strongly in the Chase Your Dream, No Matter What campaign, because I love the fact that Bridgestone values mental and physical determination, strength and endurance, championing the journey to achieve your goals as much as the result.”

Charley Hull is a female existing in the predominantly male world of golf.

“I’ve come up against many barriers as a female golfer and I’ve had to learn to battle these to succeed. When you feel strongly about something, it’s your spirit as much as your ability that gets you through. I feel that I have the spirit to chase my dream, no matter what.”
