Coles Recreate Cathy Spirit for Olympics

Coles celebrates being the official supermarket of the Australian Olympic team at the 2012 Olympics with “Cathy Spirit”, a television commercial featuring a young runner and the Olympics veteran Cathy Freeman. A young woman races across an open field inspired by the Bruce McAvaney’s commentary on Cathy Freeman’s 400 metre gold-winning sprint at the Sydney 2000 Olympics. The two runners meet briefly in the field. Cathy Freeman is brand ambassador for the Coles Sports for Schools program.
