IOC's opening ceremony film spotlights 100-year old Olympian

The spot, created by Dirty Robber, looks back on momentous Olympic moments.

Agnes Keleti was a young Olympic hopeful at age 19, but she was forced to flee Nazi persecution during World War II. The Olympic Games were put on hold and so were Keleti’s big dreams.

After her 30th birthday, Keleti returned to the competition and won five Olympic Gold medals. The short film "What Agnes Saw," directed by Oscar winners Martin Desmond Roe and Travon Free and narrated by actress Danai Gurira, chronicles Keleti’s resilience throughout her career. Keleti’s story is juxtaposed with other history-making Olympic moments like Jesse Owens winning four gold medals at the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin.

"In her century, what did Agnes see?" Gurira says. "Agnes saw a light. A light that helped illuminate the entire world."

The spot ends with images of skateboarder Sky Brown, who at 13 years old will become the youngest Summer Olympian to represent Great Britain. There is now a "new generation full of hope running towards their century, a generation who knows together we are stronger than the darkness can ever be."

"What Agnes Saw," part of the International Olympic Committee’s "Stronger Together" campaign, will air during the opening ceremony of the Tokyo Olympics.
