Max Malkin of PRETTYBIRD directed and shot this Nike spot from Wieden+Kennedy, Portland, Ore., which introduces us to an 86-year-old nun who’s a triathlete training for yet another grueling Ironman competition. Sister Madonna Buder is the epitome of drive and determination, truly young at heart, of mind and body.

“Unlimited Youth” broke during the Summer Olympics. Tongue-in-cheek voiceover narration was provided by actor Oscar Isaac.
