ADIDAS ATHLETES AT THE TOP OF THEIR GAME
In May, Real Madrid wins the Champions League for the third time in a row. The team beats Liverpool F.C. 3-1. Real’s goals are scored by adidas assets Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale. In November, Kenyan runner Mary Keitany wins the New York City Marathon for the fourth time. She finishes in 2:22:48 – the second-fastest women’s time for the course in history. In the course of 2018, adidas scores many successes in tennis, e.g. with Angelique Kerber winning the Wimbledon Final, defeating seven-times Wimbledon champion Serena Williams in two sets, and Alexander Zverev beating world number one Novak Djokovic in the ATP Finals, earning the 21-year-old the biggest win in his career so far.
