In every intense 40-minute, high-stakes basketball match, players find themselves pushing their limits, contending with fatigue and the relentless drain of energy. To maintain their performance, players must consistently rehydrate to extend their time on the court.
This is where Gatorade steps in. For over 50 years, scientists, nutritionists, and world-class athletes have attested to Gatorade’s role in replenishing electrolytes and optimizing athletes’ performances.
Gilas Pilipinas key player Dwight Ramos has powered through rigorous training sessions and tune up games and refuses to be slowed down by injury—which is why apart from proper exercise, he also fuels up and replenishes lost electrolytes to prevent injury.
Ramos, along with the rest of Gilas Pilipinas, can go the extra mile with the help of Gatorade as the national team goes against world-class players at the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023.
Gatorade is the official electrolyte partner of the 32-team event, which takes place from August 25 to September 10. It will supply products to athletes and fans throughout the tournament.
Staying hydrated is the key to longevity—proven quite a number of times by another key player for Gilas and resident import of Barangay Ginebra Justin Brownlee, who had to learn this lesson the hard way.
Amidst uncomfortable playing conditions in the Cambodia Southeast Asian Games earlier this year, Brownlee battled with cramps and had to miss a crucial part of the match due to fluid loss.
“His legs were cramping up due to the heat and exhaustion,” said Gilas Pilipinas coach Chot Reyes when the Philippines lost 68-79 to host team Cambodia in a match played under 41-degree weather.
However, the six-time PBA champion bounced back stronger and more determined than ever to lead Gilas in their redemption tour.
