Pampers, the world-renowned brand of baby diapers, has partnered with two-time Olympic Games Gold Medalist and Team USA Hopeful, Kerri Walsh, to celebrate every baby’s unique spirit of play and the brand’s sponsorship of the upcoming London 2012 Olympic Games.
Kerri, and her sons (Joseph, age 3, and Sundance, age 2) were on-hand alongside Boyz II Men’s Shawn Stockman and his little one (daughter Brooklyn, age 2) and New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz and his daughter (Kennedy, age 5 months) as they celebrated this unique spirit of play at “Pampers Spirit of Play Date”, an event filled with fun, athletic activities designed to honor the littlest of champions and amp up team pride in advance of the London 2012 Olympic Games.
Boyz II Men’s Shawn Stockman shared with us details about life on the road, and the release of the band’s new album ‘Twenty’ to mark their 20th anniversary together.
Despite being together for so long, Shawn explains that the trio never tire of performing live.
“Being on stage is in or blood; it what we love,” he says.
And when asked if the three ever fight, he laughed, saying: “We all bicker from time-to time. We are three strong-minded, passionate people and sometimes we clash. But at the end of the day, we are like brothers.”
He played a major role in the Superbowl victory, and NY Giants star Victor Cruz’s face still lights up when asked about the team’s earlier this year. Was it the best moment of his life?
“It’s definitely one of amazing things that has ever happened to me, ” he says with a huge grin on his face. “It’s up their with the birth of my daughter. It was exciting and there was so much adrenalin. It was just one of those moments that you will never forget.”
Someone who is used to the exhilarating feeling of winning, is two-time Olympic Games Gold Medalist and Team USA Hopeful, Kerri Walsh.
The one thing we were struck by when we met her, was her washboard abs, and we couldn’t help but seek some advice on how to get bikini-ready.
With an air of calmness that comes rom spending so much time on the beach as a beach volleyball player and away from the rat race of the city, she said: “It’s my job to stay in shape, and I have to be in a bikini all the time. I love my job, so it’s not a bad side effect.”
She added: “But in terms of getting into shape, always try running in the sand, if you can as it help shed more pounds, and try to play games like volleyball as it is fun and doesn’t feel like you are working out.”
