Dual energy as Kagiso Rabada is announced as latest Red Bull athlete

Superstar bowler, Kagiso Rabada, has been announced as the latest athlete to join Red Bull’s team of sport’s most celebrated and watched stars, after signing a sponsorship deal with the iconic energy drink brand.

Rabada said that he’s thrilled to part of the Red Bull family of athletes: “I’m really excited to be joining the Red Bull team. Red Bull is a high performing brand that is represented by some of the greatest international sports figures of our time, so this is a great recognition and honour for me," commented Rabada.

The 23year old Protea star is the first South African cricketer and the world’s first fast-bowler to join Red Bull’s list of athletes and will be making his first appearance as a Red Bull athlete next month when he joins the panel of judges at the Red Bull Box Cart Race in Sandton, Johannesburg.

“Red Bull South Africa is ecstatic to be in partnership with Kagiso Rabada. We have been involved in and supported Cricket in South Africa over the last couple years and having KG as a Red Bull Athlete in this sporting code is an awesome wicket for our brand. We look forward to this partnership ahead!” added Josh Enslin, Athlete Manager for Red Bull South Africa.
