Canadian 800m record holder and IAAF World Championships silver medallist Melissa Bishop makes an appearance in a new Nike commercial.

Bishop is seen in the “Play Less Nice” commercial which appears to have been shot in Vancouver. “We’re Canadians,” the caption on YouTube reads. “It doesn’t matter what sport, we come to play.”

The Canadian lowered her own national record this past August in London clocking 1:57.01 at the IAAF World Championships. She won a silver at worlds in 2015.

According to Bishop, the commercial began airing during the IIHF Ice Hockey World Junior Championships.
