Bridgestone India joins Sindhu, Mary Kom and Mane in wishing Indian Olympic Contingent
Bridgestone India’s brand ambassadors and members of the Indian Olympic contingent Mary Kom, PV Sindhu and Udayan Mane wished their co-team members the very best in the forthcoming Olympic Games Tokyo 2020. All these sporting icons have worked hard towards the aim of achieving a podium finish at the forthcoming Olympic Games Tokyo 2020. Mary Kom and PV Sindhu’s journey of overcoming hardships and pursuing their dreams no matter what, is also well reflected in Bridgestone India’s Chase Your Dream campaign. Bridgestone India’s brand ambassadors are an inspiration to Indians from all walks of life. In a virtual event, these sports icons were joined by Bridgestone India’s Managing Director wishing the India contingent success and laurels in Tokyo.
“We are truly honoured to be associated with our brand ambassadors and it is a matter of pride that Mary Kom will be one of the Indian flag bearers at the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020. They not only epitomise virtues that Bridgestone India strongly stands for but also hold incredible power and influence to enthuse millions of Indians across the country who struggle to achieve their goals, more so during these very taxing times. We believe that harbouring a strong culture of sports and investing in our people will contribute towards creation of better individuals leading to a holistically developed society,” said Parag Satpute, Managing Director, Bridgestone India.
Team Bridgestone is an epic example of sheer determination to Chase your Dreams and succeed despite all challenges and the campaign calls upon Indians to cheer them as they gear up to win big in Tokyo.
“My journey with Bridgestone has been eventful and a memorable one. Through my journey I want to communicate to all my fellow athletes ready to represent India that sports is not for the faint hearted, especially boxing as a female athlete. The journey is never short of roadblocks. Bridgestone is a brand known for its strength and endurance, and it has risen to the cause of encouraging every upcoming athlete’s sportsman spirit and it resonates deeply with me,” said Mary Kom.
Sindhu adds, “As Bridgestone India’s first brand ambassador I feel thrilled and responsible to talk about my journey and all the tough lessons that have led up to achieving success in the international arena. I would want more Indians to step up to this challenge and via this platform I am honoured to be associated with Bridgestone India to spread this message of determination and perseverance. Bridgestone has a strong sports lineage which is further strengthened with their Worldwide Olympic Partnership and we want more Indian athletes to conquer the global Olympic stage.”
