Excerpts, translated from Spanish via Google:
¤¤ Amstel brings Rafa Nadal closer to his followers to experience a moment as special as sharing a beer.
...Just a few weeks ago, José Javier García and Luís Díaz would have imagined little that they were going to take an Amstel Oro 0.0 [a non-alcoholic beer] with Rafa Nadal, an idol for them and a benchmark in world sport.
Both are the winners of a contest organized by the brewery so that two followers of the Spanish tennis player would have the luck to meet him at the Rafa Nadal Academy
. A meeting that follows the very Spanish custom of sharing a chat over a beer
, something that has been possible thanks to the close and relaxed character of the Amstel ambassador [Rafa Nadal].
Nadal has answered the questions of both winners ...
"I spent a pleasant time with José Javier and Luis. In addition to letting them see the [academy] facilities and what we do, we had a good time and I saw the passion they have for tennis.
We spent a great time and had a beer together, talking about sports", declared the tennis player
José Javier García from Bilbao and Luis Díaz from Córdoba participated along with thousands of other applicants
in a contest organized by Amstel through their profiles on social networks.
Díaz made his candidacy stand out thanks to the adaptation he made of the lyrics of a popular song.
A display of ingenuity that revealed his detailed knowledge of Nadal's sporting career. "I have followed him since 2003, I have been able to see some of his matches live, I am passionate about his sports career and, above all, the character that makes him an example inside and outside the competition,"
said the Cordovan.
An opinion shared by the other winner of the contest, who highlights Rafa's values, his elegance when it comes to knowing how to win, but also when he loses. "He is capable of uniting an entire country, he has become a legend, even for those who are not sports lovers,"
says García. His candidacy for the contest stood out because he wondered about Nadal's interests when he is off the track,
when he has time to rest between competitions or is recovering from an injury. A curiosity that is surely shared by many of the Spaniards who choose him as the favorite, along with other personalities such as Penélope Cruz, in the polls about who they would have a beer with.
Nadal's spirit of improvement and serenity have led him to be an ambassador of responsible consumption with one of the HEINEKEN family brands, within his strategy
'Brindando por un Mundo Mejor' (Brew a Better World) that works, among other issues, to promote a style active and healthy lifestyle, offering more choices for consumers within the non-alcoholic category.
