Nike Honours Sam Kerr and Her ‘Birthplace of Dreams’

Soccer superstar Sam Kerr is the focus of a new short film that shines light on her childhood, her passion for AFL and the sorrow she felt in having to turn her back on the sport she loved. "Birthplace of Dreams" was released by Nike yesterday and gives an insight into the resilient woman who was once mistaken for a boy as a junior footy player.

Sam Kerr, star striker and Captain for the Matildas and four-time golden boot winner for both W-League and NWSL, features in a Nike short film, “Birthplace of Dreams.” 

Paying homage to this athlete’s incredible resilience and dream of being the best, the film begins with her childhood growing up in Perth, her AFL dream of playing for the West Coast Eagles, and also gives us a glimpse into her family, relationships and Billy the Boxer (Sam’s pet dog).

It also highlights her incredible mental strength and determination to get to the top despite some setbacks along the way.

Inspiring stuff. <3
