(FOX19) - Gillette honors dads in new Raising an Olympian short film featuring father and son Olympic ice hockey duo Ryan and Bob Suter.
Gillette, P&G's leading male grooming brand, honors dads with the launch of its new Raising an Olympian short film titled "Keep Your Head Up."
The film showcases the shared journey of Ryan Suter and his dad Bob Suter.
Ryan Suter is a defenseman with the Minnesota Wild of the NHL and 2010 Olympic Winter Games silver medalist.
Ryan's dad, Bob Suter, is an Olympic gold medalist who made history with the iconic "Miracle on Ice" team during the 1980 Olympic Winter Games in Lake Placid – where the U.S. team, made up of amateur players, defeated the world champion Soviet Union team.
Raising an Olympian brings to life the daily lessons all dads teach their sons and highlights how Ryan, through failures and successes, learned to always keep his head up and maintain a positive attitude.
Also revealed are Bob's efforts towards ensuring his son's pursuit of being an Olympian stemmed from his own dreams, and not as a result of pressure to follow in his dad's footsteps.
"While P&G athletes and their dads have always honored the role moms play in helping their kids achieve their dreams, Gillette is delighted to pay special tribute to the dads that play an important role too," said Hooman Shahidi, senior brand manager for Gillette North America.
