New Balance continues its ongoing “Runs in the Family” campaign, this week spotlighting Olympic hurdler and sprinter Sydney McLaughlin. The installment follows the brand’s spot starring Jaden Smith from last week and the initial clip featuring Smith, McLaughlin, Kawhi Leonard, professional footballer Sadio Mane, pro skater Jamie Foy, and Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor.

In New Balance’s “Runs in the Family” campaign each ambassador details their own story celebrating the qualities that run in their family. While Jaden touched on vision, Sydney delves into the strength she gets from those closest to her.
