9:36am Friday 16th August 2013 in News
CREWE gymnast, Rachel Perris, will see herself up in lights when she is beamed from Coca-Cola’s iconic Piccadilly Circus screen in London.
The 16-year-old has been chosen star in a new advertising campaign by the soft drinks company.
Rachel is a keen gymnast and will be competing at the Special Olympics National Games with over 1,700 other athletes from around Great Britain.
She was given the full VIP treatment at a professional film and photo shoot in London with renowned sports photographer, Graham Hughes, whose past subjects include gold medal winning Olympians Jessica Ennis and Bradley Wiggins and other top sports stars such as Lewis Hamilton and Andy Murray.
She said: “The day with Coca-Cola was fantastic. I had my hair and make-up done and I loved it.
“I can’t wait to show my friends my poster in Crewe and I can’t believe I’m going to be up in Piccadilly Circus.”
Rachel will appear in advertising around the country to celebrate the 35 year partnership between Coca-Cola Great Britain and the sports charity Special Olympics Great Britain.
The Special Olympics GB National Games will be held in Bath from August 28, 2013.
