Official Olympics sponsor Coke commissioned Mark Ronson to come up with a song for this year’s Summer Olympics in London, and the always-ingenuitive Ronson used recorded snippets of the athletes — Mexican Taekwondo athlete Maria del Rosario Espinoza muffled punches, Russian runner Kseniya Olegovna Vdovina’s heartbeat — for use in his anthemic instrumental. Dancehall star Katy B adds vocals to make the whole thing just that much more epic. Watch the video below.

For those curious about the stems of the instrumental, head to Coca-Cola’s website for a pretty cool interactive “Making Of” application.
