The signing ceremony took place on August 25th in Nanjing, China, the host city of the 2nd Summer Youth Olympic Games. IOC President Thomas Bach and Jay Y.

This expanded product category includes smartphones, tablets, laptops, personal computers and other computing equipment, and desktop printers.

“We are delighted to be able to continue our partnership with Samsung. The funding generated by the TOP Programme directly supports the staging of every Olympic Games, as well as every one of the National Olympic Committees, enabling athletes from all over the world to prepare for and compete at each Games,” said Thomas Bach, IOC President. “Samsung also supports the operations of each Games by providing leading wireless telecommunications and technology equipment. In addition, Samsung’s technologies and global marketing reach will engage fans around the world with the Olympic values and the Olympic Movement.”

Samsung’s association with the Olympic Movement began when the company became a local sponsor of the Seoul 1988 Olympic Games. Since the Nagano 1998 Olympic Winter Games, Samsung has joined the TOP (The Olympic Partner)Programme and has been a Worldwide Olympic Partner in the Wireless Communications Equipment category. The company’s role has evolved throughout 26 years of its involvement with the Olympic Games.
