WWE SUPERSTAR, actor and reality television show host John Cena astonished two Invictus Games competitors and their girlfriends with an unforgettable VIP chauffeur experience in a Range Rover Sport SVR.
Launched in 2014 by Prince Harry, the Invictus Games is an international adaptive sporting event for wounded, ill and injured servicemen and servicewomen, both serving and veteran.
Cena, an Invictus Games ambassador for Jaguar Land Rover, collected unsuspecting US team members Tino Ulli and his girlfriend Shari Trujillo and Joshua Jablon and his girlfriend Lindsey Green, and chauffeured them to ESPN Wide World of Sport, the venue for the Games hosted in Orlando earlier this month.
Hidden cameras were installed in the Range Rover Sport to film the passengers’ reactions, which can be viewed by clicking the video above.
John Cena said:
I’m honoured to be part of the Invictus Games in Orlando this year and have the opportunity to meet with some of the US team. It was a lot of fun taking on the role of surprise chauffeur and I was pleased to have the opportunity to get to know the competitors and their family members.
“We are all indebted to our servicemen and women and I fully support the Games and the opportunity it gives us all to recognize the heroes of our nation.”
Joshua Jablon, a retired Marine lance corporal from Mankato, Minnesota, is affected by invisible injury Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and won a silver medal in the discus throw and a gold in the shotput during the Games.
Tino Ulli, a retired Air Force Staff Sergeant, competed in rowing, powerlifting and the shotput, and is also affected by (PTSD).
Land Rover recently announced that it will continue as Presenting Partner of the 2017 Invictus Games to be held in Toronto, Canada.
