Most professional athletes are masters at their particular sports, but how would they fare if they were called out to compete in another sport entirely? It’s an interesting question, and one that tennis star Roger Federer asked his Twitter followers last October – “If you could watch me play any other athlete in any other sport (other than our own sport), what sport and what athlete? #AskedRF”
One of the first challengers to reply to the tweet was American World Cup alpine ski racer, Lindsey Vonn, who threw down the gauntlet and offered to ski with Federer if he would play tennis with her. While he didn’t accept her challenge at the time, the two have formed a close friendship since then, supporting each other through social media and apparently even becoming Skype buddies.
Now months later, it looks like a competition between the two is brewing. In the video above, we see Federer, fresh from the Wimbledon finals, challenging Vonn to .. something. What exactly they’ll be doing is still a mystery, but all will be revealed this Thursday July 17th when the second video is revealed.
Be sure to check back with us this Thursday, when we’ll reveal the full details about this challenge. In the meantime, you can visit Lindt’s official Facebook page or follow them on Twitter at @Lindt. And you can follow all the action (and inevitable trash talk) on Twitter between these two super athletes by using the #ChocolateHeaven hashtag.
What do you think the challenge between Roger Federer and Lindsey Vonn will entail?
