The two biggest stars in the athletic world are at it again. Dwyane Wade and Cristiano Ronaldo have been engaging in various trick shot challenges on social media the last couple of months. They have been trying to out duel each other using their athletic prowess. The two have finally ended their #RaiseIt campaign. They topped it off in style using drones.
I was wondering where this was going. And now we finally have a conclusion to the saga of D-Wade and Ronaldo. PokerStars tapped two of the biggest athletes in the world to help promote #RaiseIt. Dwyane Wade is an NBA champion and most known for helping the Miami Heat win a world title. He squared off against the world's top football player (er, soccer) Cristiano Ronaldo in a series of different challenges involving some sort of athletic feat involving their respective sports. For D-Wade it was basketball and Ronaldo with a soccer ball.
After a couple of months of releasing various challenges for RaiseIt, the two have finally reached a conclusion. They used drones for their grand finale and the footage was spectacular.
Here's the press release from PokerStars HQ...
