A SPANISH Olympian has been declared the new face of Martini after winning a global contest.

Barbara Gonzalez, 27, from Pamplona, was spotted after the brand launched a Facebook search to find a woman that embodied Martini’s ‘ethos’ that ‘luck is an attitude’.

The brunette also won €150,000, 12 pairs of Christian Louboutin shoes and 12 designer outfits.

The gymnast will join the ranks of Charlize Theron, Thandie Newton and Monica Bellucci in fronting the stylish ads.
