New Jersey Olympian Gets Her Own Sports Drink Bottle
Sixteen year-old Sydney McLaughlin is not only representing the USA (and New Jersey!!) in the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio, but she also has her very own Gatorade bottle!
McLaughlin will represent Team USA in Track & Field. The opening ceremonies for the 2016 Summer Olympics will commence on August 5th, but Sydney won't arrive in Rio until August 9th allowing her to celebrate her 17th birthday at home.
Her father has two cases of the purple Gatorade at their home. NJ.com says Sydney is not sure what to do with them,
The special edition bottle honors McLaughlin's selection as the Gatorade Female Athlete of the Year, a title she won during a ceremony in Los Angeles on July 12.
When asked what she plans to do with all of her Gatorade bottles, she replied, "Actually, everyone is asking me (about that). I don't know if I should sell them or not. Probably not."
