As part of the company’s ongoing partnership with the United States Olympic Committee, BP will host the “Spirit of the Gulf,” a series of events for Team USA during the London 2012 Olympic Games. More than 1,000 people each day will be encouraged to visit the Gulf Coast, sample the world’s freshest and best-tasting seafood and experience the Gulf’s unique culture and distinctive attractions.
BP believes the London 2012 Olympic Games are the ultimate demonstration of human sporting endeavor, bringing together extraordinary athletes from around the world. BP believes that the Team USA athletes and the U.S. Olympic Movement embody the values that the company wishes to exemplify. BP also believes that success comes from working as one team – the athletes are supported by the energy of a number of people who help them to achieve their best.
“BP’s support for the U.S. Olympic Movement in London demonstrates our commitment to operating in and contributing to the economic vitality of thousands of local communities across the globe,” said Crystal Ashby, BP’s vice president of government and public affairs. “BP is proud to use the power of the London 2012 Olympic Games as another way to promote the Gulf Coast, draw new visitors to the region and demonstrate our ongoing commitment to the community.”
