Two lucky Digicel customers will be enjoying an all-expense paid trip for two to Brazil to cheer on Team Jamaica at the Olympics this August.
Kenolee Hamilton, a 34-year old farmer from Nine Turns District in Clarendon and Nandi-Gail Stanton, an accountant from Portmore both found themselves winners in the Digicel Sprint to Brazil promotion.
For Hamilton, social media proved to be her winning ticket as she won after gaining the most points in Digicel’s Sprint to Brazil Social Media Trials, via Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Hamilton will be travelling to Brazil with her sister, Terry-Ann.
“It’s always been my dream to go to one of the Olympics,” Hamilton said. “Athletics has always been one of my favourite sports and every time the Olympics come around, I watch every race and cheer for my country. The way how I love it, sometimes I watch the races and cry when I see how the athletes are out there representing Jamaica, whether they win, lose or draw. So, I can’t wait to be in that stadium this August cheering on the Jamaican team live and in living colour!”
Stanton, who got the call telling her that she won the trip to Brazil, was in the midst of her birthday celebrations. She said, “The messages would come up on my phone telling me how much entries I had in the promotion, but I wouldn’t pay them any mind. I never thought that I could ever win. So when I got the call from Digicel on my birthday telling me that I won the trip to Brazil, I thought I was being tricked! It was so surreal.”
Stanton plans to share the experience with her boyfriend of eight years, Oneil Miller.
Both will be spending a total of ten days in Brazil. The prize package includes tickets to all the races, brand new DL1000 smartphones and service, tours and exclusive access to signed memorabilia from Team Jamaica.
