As Emily mentioned last week, we are ambassadors or Coca-Cola’s Olympic 8-Pack of Atheletes program. We are both REALLY excited about this because we loooooove the Olympics and Coke! (Emily likes Diet, I like Vanilla!)
The Coca-Cola 8-pack of Athletes is a group of Olympic athletes who are now being featured on MyCokeRewards.com . You can log on to My Coke Rewards and take a quiz about the featured athletes at MyCokeRewards.com/theolympics . Emily and I are SO COOL that we even have our very own athlete. Ok, she’s not like, ours personally, but we do get to feature her which is pretty cool! She is 23-year-old soccer forward Alex Morgan.
Alex played college soccer at UC Berkeley and is tied for third place all-time scorer in the state of California with 45 goals! She was also the first California Golden Bears Women’s Soccer Player to be drafted in the first round of Women’s Professional Soccer, and last summer she was the youngest player named to the United States’ World Cup team roster. She ain’t messing around, folks. Alex’s favorite thing about soccer is that is a TEAM sport, and her theme for her Olympic experience and Coca-Cola 8-pack athlete experience is togetherness. I love this because it’s such an important lesson that I’m working on with my kids right now; it’s a sporting lesson that can be applied to every area of life. As families, we are teams, I am working with my older two on how we have to do what’s best for our family as a whole, as a team, even if it may not be what we individually want to do at that moment! (Read: you cannot play upstairs when the baby is asleep. Because it is the best thing for our family if the baby SLEEPS!)
Here’s a 30-second clip of Alex and some of her fellow Coca-Cola 8-packers talking about some amazing sporting moments in their lives:
