Cena Chauffeurs Invictus Games Competitors

WWE Superstar John Cena surprised two U.S. Invictus Games competitors and their family members with an unforgettable VIP chauffeur experience inside the cabin of a rip-roaring Range Rover Sport SVR.

Cena, an Invictus Games ambassador for Jaguar Land Rover, picked up unsuspecting U.S. team members Tino Ulli and his girlfriend Shari Trujillo and Joshua Jablon and his girlfriend Lindsey Green, and chauffeured them to ESPN Wide World of Sports, the venue for the Games that were hosted in Orlando in May.

Cena said, “I’m honored to be part of the Invictus Games in Orlando this year and have the opportunity to meet with some of the US team. It was a lot of fun taking on the role of surprise chauffeur and I was pleased to have the opportunity to get to know the competitors and their family members. We are all indebted to our servicemen and women and I fully support the Games and the opportunity it gives us all to recognize the heroes of our nation. I wish all the competitors the very best of luck for the final stages of the Games.”

Joshua Jablon, a retired Marine Lance corporal from Mankato, Minnesota who is affected by invisible injury PTSD, has earned a silver medal in discus throw and gold in shot-put during the Games.  Tino Ulli is a retired Air Force Staff Sergeant competing in rowing, powerlifting and shot-put, and is also affected by PTSD.

Cena was also featured in the Invictus Games Closing Ceremony, presenting the ‘”Land Rover Above and Beyond Award” to an individual who has gone above and beyond not only what is expected as a competitor, but also as a teammate at the Invictus Games. It is judged on sportsmanship, commitment to the Games and demonstration of an inspiring example of “Invictus Spirit”.

After the conclusion of second edition of the Games, Land Rover announced that it will continue as Presenting Partner of the 2017 Invictus Games to be held in Toronto, Canada.

“Tile” by Land Rover

The all new 2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport is the now the SUV that never forgets, thanks to the world-first integration of Tile’s advanced tracking app.

Jaguar Land Rover is proud to be the first to incorporate this ground-breaking technology that will help you find your lost items.   The app uses Tile tags, which are tiny Bluetooth trackers that can be attached to important items such as your keys and wallet, and is used to track their whereabouts using smartphone technology.   Once the app is initiated using the central touchscreen, customers are alerted if specified items are not inside the vehicle and are even able to get on-screen directions to their last known location.

Peter Virk, Jaguar Land Rover’s Director of Connected Technologies & Apps, said:  “Losing your wallet or leaving your child’s sports kit behind isn’t just an inconvenience. The realization you’ve mislaid something important can be a cause of distraction. Our unique partnership with Tile means customers can check the status of tagged items using Discovery Sport’s touchscreen, so forgotten items will be a thing of the past.”

Land Rover integrates Tile with its innovative in-car entertainment system. The partnership allows customers to establish a list of “Essentials” using the vehicle touchscreen, which are always checked when the app is initiated. If items are lost inside the vehicle, customers are able to sound a 90-decibel alarm on the Tile tag, to help locate them.

The Tile smartphone app is compatible with both Android and Apple platforms and the number of items that can be tracked is limitless.    To find out more about Tile, call or visit Land Rover Dallas today!
