In the most emphatic fashion, Red Bull athlete and Springbok captain Siya Kolisi was surprised with a limited edition Red Bull Energy Drink can, featuring his likeness. Kolisi was at Hamilton’s Rugby Club, Cape Town under the pretence of an interview, when fellow Red Bull athlete and paraglider, Veselin Ovcharov swooped in and presented him with the can.
Kolisi was in the middle of a video interview when he looked up to see Ovcharov gliding through the air above him – having launched from Signal Hill minutes earlier. Unbeknown to Kolisi, the Bulgarian paraglider was carrying a cold can of Kolisi’s limited edition Red Bull Energy Drink can where he presented it to him as he landed.
“I’m really touched, I still can’t believe it. I’m beyond thankful for what the Red Bull team has done for me in my career and shown me there’s more to partnerships. We want to change people’s lives together. I’m proud and grateful to be part of this team.” says Kolisi.
Look out for the Siya Kolisi limited edition Red Bull Energy Drink can in stores nationwide soon.
