Coca-Cola is a global sponsor of the International Olympic Committee and the U.S. Olympic Committee, along with ATOS, Dow, General Electric, McDonald's, Omega, Panasonic, Procter & Gamble, Samsung and Visa.
Coke is also one of just three presenting sponsors of the 2014 Sochi Torch Relay (along with JSC Russian Railways and Ingosstrakh Insurance). According to tradition, the Olympic flame will be lit in Olympia, Greece, then transported to Moscow on Oct, 7, 2013. It will begin its journey across Russia the next day en route to the Sochi Games, which run Feb. 7-23, 2014. The Paralympics Games will run March 7-16.
Kwan was part of a 22-person team that carried the Olympic Torch during the U.S. portion of the route, also sponsored in part by Coke, prior to the 2012 Summer Games in London.
