Katy Perry released her fearless video for the 2016 Olympics anthem “Rise” on Thursday (Aug. 4), showing the strength of an Olympian in the dramatic clip.
“Through the blood, sweat (lots of it), and tears, we keep rising,” Perry tweeted.

The pop star definitely braves the elements in the video for the Rio theme song, traveling through desert rocks and waters and climbing walls to “Rise” above, all while attempting to get her parachute going.
The single was released July 14, serving as a reminder to — as Perry stated — “rise above the fear” and how the upcoming Olympic games will showcase the athletes’ “strength and fearlessness, to remind us how we ALL can come together.”
