Adidas has introduced #FanTheFire in an attempt to bring focus onto other sports in India.
The short film shows the story of Nischay Luthra, an 18-year old Indian athlete aiming for a medal in Figure Skating at the Winter Games 2018, is narrated by his mother.
Nischay's journey in the film highlights the struggle which Indian players from other sports have to go through to achieve success.
