Panasonic and the Olympics
Panasonic is the official Worldwide Olympic Partner in the Audio and Video Equipment product category, and global sponsor for Vancouver 2010 Winter Games.
To share in the excitement of the Winter Games Panasonic Global has recently launched the “One Winter, Five Dreams” athletes’ blogs and Gold Blogger competition (competition now closed). The five athletes introduced here are striving for glory at the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games, and we will follow their quest to overcome a variety of adverse circumstances in seeking the opportunity to compete in the Olympic Games.
They may not be “star” athletes, but like every Olympic contender they have a dramatic story to tell. It is the strength to believe in one’s dream that makes it possible to keep on trying and overcome all types of adversity. We want to put these athletes in the spotlight and share their dreams and passion for Olympic competition.
Using videos and photos, the five athletes with highly unique experiences, will blog about daily training and events and their passion in pursuit of their dreams of becoming an Olympian. Readers can post messages on the blog to encourage and support them to realize their dreams.
