Directed by Juan Cabral of MJZ, this film for Visa Europe--a sponsor of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games--follows an athlete preparing to compete and depicts the journey he goes through in the buildup to the ultimate moment; the competition. His everyday life is interspersed with images of a beating heart, underscoring the heart of the dedicated athlete.

Titled “The Heart,” this 90-second cinema spot kicks off Visa Europe’s “Heart of the Olympian” campaign from Saatchi & Saatchi London. The ad will run in movie theaters in the U.K. Versions will also run across a range of channels including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, created especially for the campaign.
