GB Olympic champion rewarded with gold Nissan LEAF

Team GB gymnast Max Whitlock will be presented with an all-gold Nissan LEAF following his record breaking success at the Rio Olympics.

The gymnast made history by becoming the first British gymnast to win a gold medal at the Olympic Games. But just like buses, we didn’t have to wait long for the next gold medal as Max won two back-to-back. In what has been dubbed ‘Sensational Sunday’, Max beat off stern competition, first on the floor exercise, before winning another gold medal on the pommel horse.

As ambassador of Nissan, and in recognition of his achievements, Max will receive the keys to a gold wrapped Nissan LEAF. All Nissan ambassadors in Team GB and ParalympicsGB who return with a gold medal will receive the same honour, making it a very limited and exclusive club.

“Max has been a Nissan ambassador since we first launched our partnership with Team GB and so many of us at Nissan have had the pleasure of working with him and getting to know him as he prepared for the biggest sporting night of his life,” commented Chris Marsh, Marketing Director at Nissan Motor (GB).

“We are all so proud to have him associated with Nissan and he’s the perfect person to be a recipient of one of our gold LEAFs."

We’re looking forward to spotting our Olympic heroes out on the road – they will sure be easy to spot! You can trial your own Nissan LEAF (except for the gold exterior), from one of our many UK branches and help to champion lower emissions and a cleaner environment.
