Katarina Johnson-Thompson announced as Nissan Micra ambassador image

The rising British heptathlon star and London 2012 Olympian will appear alongside the new supermini in a series of TV idents, embracing the Micra’s ‘Go Get It’ attitude.

The New Micra idents will feature Katarina Johnson-Thompson demonstrating her ‘Go Get It’ attitude in a range of dramatic situations. The idents depict Johnson-Thompson going about her daily routine with her ‘Go Get It’ attitude, completely unfazed by the drama going on around her.

Katarina Johnson-Thompson said: “Last summer was an incredible experience for me and I’m proud of my heptathlon achievements so far, including a personal best and fifth place finish at the World Championships last month. I am delighted to be the face of the new Micra and its powerful ‘Go Get It’ attitude.”

Jim Wright, managing director of Nissan GB said: “The New Micra delivers a confident performance. It appeals to a younger female audience with its interior makeover featuring the latest touchscreen technology and the two bold new colours stand out from the crowd. Katarina Johnson-Thompson epitomises a ‘Go Get It’ attitude and as a dedicated individual who excels in all seven of her chosen disciplines she was the perfect fit for the new Nissan Micra. She’s ambitious, tenacious and is a positive influence on and off the track. She’s the perfect ambassador for this car.”

Nissan is also an Official Automotive Partner to Team GB and ParalympicsGB supporting the two teams on their ‘Road to Sochi and Rio’ and providing vehicles to the British Olympic Association (BOA) and British Paralympic Association (BPA). Nissan will apply its performance credentials and expertise in innovative technology to help enhance the squad’s training regimes and overall performance.
