John Isner: Part of the Coca-Cola 8-pack of Athletes at the Olympic Games {Coca-Cola Olympics Prize Pack Giveaway!} #Coke8pack


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.

John Isner

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!

Coca-Cola sign

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:

Shawn Johnson (gymnastics)
Henry Cejudo (wrestling)
Alex Morgan (soccer)
John Isner (tennis)
Jessica Long (U.S. Paralympics team – swimming)
Marlen Esparza (boxing)
David Boudia (diving)
David Oliver (track and field)

Are you ready to cheer on your favorites on My Coke Rewards and at the Olympics? Don't miss this fun opportunity! And, thanks to the generosity of Coca-Cola, one person will be completely geared up to celebrate the Summer Games as well, because...

One lucky person will receive a Coca-Cola Olympics Prize Pack* valued at $100!


*The prize pack will include (1) each of the following: Coke/Olympics pin, Coke/Olympics ball cap, Coke/Olympics Cooler bag, Coke/Olympics T-shirt, Men's NBC/Olympics t-shirt, NBC/Olympics pen, NBC/Olympics journal, Women's Nike polo shirt, and exciting merchandise from John Isner.

(Enter with the Rafflecopter form below. If you have any questions or problems entering, there is a video tutorial found here that can help.)

I remember when I was little occasionally we'd have a super special pizza night (like once every few months). We'd get plain pizzas and Mom would get one bottle of Orange Sunkist, and one of Coke. The only way I could drink the "yucky black drink" was to mix it with my orange so it would become a weird brown. Now I prefer coke to orange, but I still remember mixing drinks with my brothers and sisters (probably to my parents' disgust).

My earliest memory of coke was when I was little - drinking it out of the cool glass bottles...my brother and I loved those!

Coke was the only soda that my parents had when we were growing up. I remember those hot summer days playing outside and the first thing we would grab when we came in was an ice cold coke.

I remember going to my Grandmas house and her giving me drinks of her coke and my mom getting mad and then finally allowing me to drink it.
