Cover picture for the articleThere's an iconic Gatorade commercial from 1997 featuring soccer star Mia Hamm and basketball legend Michael Jordan. If you haven't seen it, it's set to "Anything You Can Do (I Can Do Better)" and showcases them trying to one-up each other while doing different sports. Though it looks like all fun and games, it also emphasizes the capability of both men and women as athletes. Now, in a new campaign for Gatorade Zero with Protein, this same concept of empowerment is highlighted in a remake of the original commercial, this time with Abby Wambach, who scored a whopping 184 career goals for the USWNT (26 more than Hamm) and has two Olympic gold medals, and world record runner Usain Bolt. (Wambach's favorite flavor is Cool Blue, by the way.)
