It was a star-studded night, as athletes and entertainers united Tuesday under the Gatorade banner in SOHO New York.

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning, Jets running back LaDainian Tomlinson, and mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs were on hand to help launch the event.

"I think it's a great party," Tomlinson said. "People really need to know that this is something we've been taking for a long time, it's something that helps us perform at the highest level."

For the first time, Gatorade will release the "G Series Pro" line, which until now, was only available for college and professional athletes.

"This is a nice atmosphere for everyone to get a chance to try the product, and talk about it," said Jets wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery. "I'm a big endurance guy, I drink a lot of endurance stuff, especially at halftime to give me that extra boost and to finish out the game."

Gatorade, which is constantly working on improving and revolutionizing the ways to combat fatigue and dehydration, will drop their "G Series Pro" line on May 1, at GNC retailers nationwide.

Other Gatorade athletes, such as Eli Manning, was also on hand to inform the public of the importance the "G Series Pro" line had on his athletic career.

"I've been drinking this stuff for 11 years now. I've been a big fan and supporter of Gatorade for a number of years, and they're the best out there in the sports world in having sports drinks and nutritional stuff, so it has been a big help for me."

The sports drinks are just one aspect of the "G Series Pro" line, as Gatorade will introduce their way of preparing athletes before a game, and helping them recover afterwards.

The line will include a carbohydrate energy drink, nutritional shake and bar, an endurance formula that comes in both powder and liquid form, and a protein recovery shake for after a workout or competition.

If Gatorade's "G Series Pro" line is anything like the event they hosted Tuesday night, then it's safe to say that the chances of disappointment are slim to none.
