“Participating in the ‘Greatness Moves Us’ campaign is a tremendous honour. Since starting judo in 2010, I’ve dedicated countless hours to honing my skills and competing at the highest levels. This campaign captures the dedication and passion of Para athletes and the journey to get to the Games. I’m excited to celebrate the vibrant spirit of Para sport.”

The Electrifying Musical Track in “Greatness Moves Us”

A key highlight of the campaign is the electrifying musical track by Montreal-born, Toronto-based bilingual artist Aiza, known as the ​“Afro-bop Queen​,”​ who was listed on CBC Music as a Canadian artist who broke out in 2023.

Custom-created in both English and French and with elements of inclusion at its core, the music ensures the campaign resonates ​across Canada​.

The track, composed by Jeremy Wallace Maclean, was carefully crafted to include breathing space in the audio, ensuring that the descriptive video does not compete with the lyrics, allowing for a​n​ inclusive listening experience.
