Olympic Channel:

Bridgestone has increased its Olympic support by becoming a Founding Partner of the Olympic Channel: a new, ground-breaking digital platform, where fans can experience the power of sport and the Olympic Movement all year round.

As a Founding Partner, Bridgestone will play a key role in its development and will work closely with the Olympic Channel team to put content in the hands of fans anytime, anywhere, and on any device.

Initially, Bridgestone will serve as the presenting partner of the Olympic Channel’s “Against All Odds”, an eight-episode documentary series that demonstrates the embodiment of the Olympic spirit and follows eight athletes.

Each half-hour episode focuses on one athlete, offering a first-person account of a key turning point, and how personal will and determination helped them to overcome adversity and reach their goals. The first six episodes are now online.
