Serena Williams teamed up with Gatorade G2 at Hollywood’s Roosevelt Hotel to select who will appear alongside her in a new “Everyday Athletes” ad campaign for the Gatorade G2 low-calorie sports drink.
The G2 Everyday Athlete Search featured five semi-finalists – all named Serena – who traveled to the event from around the Unites States to discuss their personal stories of how sports and exercise have enhanced their lives.
Serena Williams, representatives from Shape Magazine and Gatorade G2 selected winner Serena Cuevas, 23, from San Diego, California based on Cuevas’ story of growing up with a passion to dance which was sidetracked by a car accident at the age of 17. She was told by the doctors she may never dance again. With determination and passion, Cuevas recovered and went on to compete in national and international salsa competitions, as well as establish her own dance company in San Diego.
Serena Cuevas will appear with Serena Williams in the ad campaign beginning this spring.
