If you have a body, you are an athlete. #justdoit

They wanted you to smile more.
They wanted you to be more polite.
They wanted you to scream a little softer.
They wanted you to be less aggressive when you won.
They wanted you to walk away when you made mistakes.
But instead of just becoming the player the game wanted?
You became the player it needed.

“My color doesn’t stop me from doing what I want to do. We’re all playing with the same ball, we’re playing with eleven players on each side. Football isn’t made for a certain person. Football is a universal language, anyone can play it.” - Debra Nelson
⠀
The second episode of the Common Thread series featuring Debra Nelson (@FootballBeyondBorders), @its_kairabaaa (@fcharlem) and @cdunn19 (@uswnt) focuses on sport’s ability to transcend borders and boundaries with something as simple as a ball and a goal.

“It doesn’t matter if you’re in a wheelchair, in your 80s, or what race or gender you are. Everybody can play tennis.” - @dylanalcott
⠀
Dylan is more than a top tennis player. He has used his success on the court as a vehicle to challenge perceptions about disabled people and push for inclusivity universally. “If you have a body, you really are an athlete,” says Dylan.
⠀
This is how you change the game. #justdoit

“At first, my abuela, she didn’t get it. ‘Dalia, it’s too rough for a girl. Your mom was a cheerleader – why don’t you be a cheerleader?’ Football is where I get my strength. Where I prove that nothing is off-limits. Where I can be whatever I want.”
⠀
Dalia Hurtado’s family had specific expectations of her: Work hard, get good grades, and follow in her mother’s footsteps as a cheerleader. But cheering on the sideline was never an option for Dalia.
⠀
As a kid in Mexico, she was the only girl who would play soccer with the boys, and after moving back to East LA with her abuela, she set her sights on football. At 16, she became the only girl to make the varsity team at her high school. Two years later, she’s inspired more girls to play football at her high school.
⠀
Through football, Dalia is re-writing the story her family wrote for her, breaking through stereotypes, and empowering her community to do the same – one game at a time.

“When we started to play we were in elementary school, we must’ve been around 12 years old. And well, we’re still together.” - Adela

Meet Hoops Abuelas, a crew of 16 women proving the only number that really matters is the one on your jersey. Hailing from Orizaba, Mexico, the team has been playing since 1952, and credits their skills, values, and sisterhood for keeping them strong for the past 67 years. #JustDoIt ⠀

“We’re brothers, we shared the same room when we were kids. The fact that there were two future players in that same room who would be lucky to have great careers is remarkable.” - @marcgasol
⠀
“It is a lot of fun. We just feel so lucky, you know. That two brothers, doing what we love, at the level that we have achieved, it’s very rare.” - @paugasol
⠀
Pau and Marc Gasol first picked up a basketball in a small suburb of Barcelona, Sant Boi De Llobregat. From here they would start their journey to the NBA, FIBA World Championships and their ultimate goal – inspiring the next generation to live a healthier lifestyle.
⠀
Whether through the Gasol Foundation or Basquet Girona, the Gasol brothers know their legacy is bigger than basketball.

This is their Birthplace of Dreams. #justdoit
