David Beckham was Samsung’s number one choice to be global ambassador for the sponsorship of London 2012. His success as a sportsman and his ambassadorial role in bringing the Olympic Games to London were among the many reasons for his selection. Yet, having been born in Leytonstone (itself only a single tube stop from the London 2012 Olympic Park) and having played football in the streets and parks of the area as a boy, it’s clear that David Beckham’s connections with London 2012 are unparalleled.

 

Commenting on the agreement Beckham said: “I'm very proud to be part of the team that brought the Olympics to my home city, London.  It is one of the greatest events in the world.  Working with a globally respected brand, like Samsung, our aim will be to help more and more people to enjoy and share the excitement of the London 2012 Olympic Games."

 

As a Worldwide Olympic Partner, Samsung is keen to realise the contribution sponsorship of the wireless category brings to the Olympic Games. High profile and carefully chosen partners, like David Beckham, bring immediate and direct attention to the wealth of experience and technical capability Samsung delivers to the Olympic Games clearly highlighting this in a strong, positive light. 

 

Mr. Kwon observed: “David Beckham is a global sports icon who is helping to raise the profile of the London 2012 Olympics and attracting more of us to watch and to actively participate in the Games. We are very excited about the new partnership for our customers and fans of the Olympics and we’re looking forward to working with David across the range of London 2012 marketing initiatives we will be pursuing until the end of 2012.”

MICHAEL PHELPS: OMEGA’S QUINTESSENTIAL AMBASSADOR

Since 2004, Michael Phelps has brought a human face to the values of OMEGA and his enormous international popularity and success continue to bring instant worldwide recognition to the brand. Michael was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland and started swimming at the age of seven, in part due to the influence of his sisters who were also swimmers.


He excelled almost immediately and by the age of 10, he had already set a national record for his age group. More age group records followed and Michael’s rapid improvement led to his qualification for the United States Olympic team in 2000 at the tender age of 15.
37 world records: :: <small>OMEGA</small>

A warm welcome to OMEGA

Michael Phelps and OMEGA – shared dedication to time and timing. About his relationship with the company, Michael says, “Time and timing are as important to OMEGA as they are to me. OMEGA has offered unwavering support for a long time. I really think that being part of a company like this is extremely special.” He adds, “OMEGA and I have been very good partners and it’s been amazing to have been an ambassador for so many years. It’s like having a family around when I’m traveling. I’m looking forward to sharing time with them this summer at the World Championships in Shanghai, and of course I'm looking ahead to London in 2012.”


Michael’s contributions to sport


Stephen Urquhart, the president of OMEGA, commented recently on his brand's most prominent swimming ambassador, saying, “How can we calculate Michael’s contribution to his sport? He’s the most successful athlete in any sport in Olympic history. He’s won more gold medals at the World Championships than any other swimmer.

His achievements are mind-boggling.”


Stephen Urquhart is right: Michael won eight gold medals at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, setting seven world records and one Olympic mark in the process. Four years earlier in Athens, he won six gold medals and two bronzes, so his Olympic total is a staggering 14 gold medals and two bronzes. To put his 2008 accomplishment in perspective: only three countries – China, the United States, and Germany – won more gold medals than Michael Phelps.

Michael has set 37 world records including 29 solo world records and eight as a member of a relay team. At the FINA XIV World Championships in Shanghai, he looks forward to adding to the 20 gold medals he won at previous World Championships (which is, in itself, a record).

Michael Phelps: better under pressure


The expectations placed on someone who has enjoyed Michael Phelps’s level of success are enormous. Will he be

able to cope with it in the upcoming World Championships in Shanghai?


Michael Phelps’s coach, Bob Bowman has said about his star, “His greatest strength is his ability to relax and focus under pressure. As the pressure gets higher, he performs better – that’s very rare. He has an ability to be at his best at

the critical moment.”

OMEGA joins the rest of the world in looking forward to the greatest swimmer ever adding to his legacy.
