Cellhire has partnered with the French Special Olympics for their visit to Pyeong Chang, South Korea while they take part in the World Winter Games. Athletes will compete in snow-shoeing, cross country skiing, alpine skiing and speed skating.
Over 100 delegations from countries around the world have attended the World Winter Games and participated in the ceremonial parade of athletes in front of a capacity crowd, as they prepared for the Korean “Dream Chorus”, the culturally themed opening ceremony. Many national celebrities including Yuna Kim, Yao Ming, Dikembe Mutombo and others joined in the celebration. Korean President Lee Myung-bak and Korean President-elect Park Geun-hye, who will become Korea’s first female president, were in attendance to welcome the more than 2,300 athletes from around the world to the Republic of Korea.
Twenty two athletes, seven coaches and four technical officers from the French team flew out to Pyeong Chang, South Korea, to participate in the Games. Cellhire has supplied a local mobile solution for the team while they are in South Korea providing local, low cost call solutions for the event.
Fanny Lozé, Directrice Générale, Cellhire France says, “It is a privilege to work with such high profile organisations like the French Special Olympics. We have really focused on refining our athletics offering, continuing on from our great success at the London Olympics last year. We worked with the French Olympic Association during London 2012 and it’s testament to our service that we are seeing further business from those same organisations. Cellhire continues to work with sports and athletics teams and media from around the world and plans to build on its Olympic success having already agreed a deal with MegaFon in Russia for the Sochi Winter Olympics in 2014.”
