From swimming to gymnastics to track & field (and many more!) the 2012 Olympic Summer games in London have already proven to be a not-to-be-missed event. Around here we've been watching since the Olympic trials and my kids are amazed to hear that these are the fastest swimmers or most talented tennis players in the world.
In the whole world? Big Sister E asks. I nod. You mean the whole wide earth?
I have to admit that the thought is pretty amazing to me as well.
Therefore, if you missed my news earlier this month, I'm thrilled to have a chance to be a Coca-Cola Olympics Ambassador and work with Coca-Cola to share their role as a partner in the Olympic games. Even better, Coca-Cola has teamed up with an extremely talented group of athletes that are training for the Olympic Games and has dubbed them The Coca-Cola 8-pack of athletes.
While all eight of the athletes are incredible, I'm happy to be focusing on tennis superstar John Isner, as he is an inspiration and great role model for young tennis hopefuls everywhere.
Having been a featured athlete on MyCokeRewards.com, you can head over right now and find out about John, his family, significant events in his life, how he stays active, and much more. Simply take his fun quiz and you'll not only discover the answers but get to hear the personal answers right from John himself.
When it comes to his favorite memory of Coca-Cola, I loved hearing about John's childhood experience and memories of going to the hot dog hut with his grandfather. What better way to be introduced to the delicious flavor of Coca-Cola than by going with your grandfather every Sunday and picking up a hot dog for $1 and an ice cold Coke for only 10¢!
While we didn't have a hot dog hut around when I was young, I can remember pulling up to the grocery store and being excited to see the hot dog truck set up in the parking lot. Back then the Coke was served in those waxy paper cups and never tasted sweeter or more refreshing!
Be sure to head over to My Coke Rewards to join in the fun - along with getting to know the 8-pack of athletes, there are also weekly prizes and an instant win game! As a reminder, the complete list of Olympians that you can get to know through this unique campaign are:
