Rather than viewing the Win From Within campaign as a far-stretched effort to increase sales, Gatorade starts a conversation with a population much more than just sports fans or Gatorade consumers. By viewing Abby Wambach as just a regular human and no longer the legendary athlete, Gatorade is able to attract attention to their brand by creating a more personal relationship with the athletes we idolize. Gatorade and Abby Wambach both know her memory will never be forgotten, but disconnecting the individual from their respective sports makes the story more personable for the audience.

When these kids grow up, they can use these skills to be able to cooperate and talk with their colleagues.
