LBB's Addison Capper is inspired by a branded short film about the world's fastest blind runner
Since contracting Kawasaki disease at 15 months-old and losing his sight by the time he was a teenager, Paralympic champion and 100-metre world record holder David Brown has not seen the lane lines, starting blocks or the curves of the track. Bound by a four-inch tether, David and his running guide, Jerome Avery, have formed a unique partnership that has endured for more than seven years, during which Brown became a gold medallist, two-time World Champion, world record breaker and the first totally blind athlete to run 100m in under 11 seconds.
David and Jerome's inspiring story is being told in a cinematic branded documentary from running brand On, just in time for David's return to defend his title in Tokyo. The 21-minute short was written by creative director Andy Fackrell and directed by Little Minx’s Andrew Dosunmu. It is wholly worth your time, along with the rest of the crop that make up this week's Work of the Week. Check out the full list below.
