Gatorade is launching three new spots as part of its ongoing, multi-year Fuel Tomorrow initiative to help ensure everyone has equal opportunities to play sports and realize their potential.

There are barriers that prevent many kids from getting into, or staying in, the game--but one of the most prevalent is the lack of representation. Gatorade is helping address this by amplifying diverse role models in sports, including Hansel Enmanuel, Suni Lee and Serena Williams. The spots celebrate the inner drive it took for these athletes to overcome the barriers in their sport to achieve greatness.

This spot features Enmanuel, a Dominican high school basketball player who attends Life Christian Academy in Kissimmee, Florida. He went viral in early 2021 for his flashy dunks, passes, three-pointers and athleticism against top high school talent despite having only one arm.

The Gatorade campaign was created by TBWA\Chiat\Day LA. Spots were directed by Malik Hassan Sayeed via production company Little Minx.
