The Bridgestone Olympic Games Experience ended its European tour in the UK in August 2021, visiting some popular locations in London (Team GB Fan Zone, Westfield Shopping Centre, White City), Birmingham (Bullring Shopping Centre) and Manchester (Exchange Square just outside the Arndale Shopping Centre) .
During August, Bridgestone, Proud Partner of the Olympic Games, brought the celebration of the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 to the public, and delivered the spirit of the Olympic Games in some popular cities across the UK. Guests were invited to experience a number of different challenges, set by the Bridgestone Olympic Games ambassadors themselves, to see if they could beat these inspirational athletes.
The activities all proved to be very popular, with visitors enjoying the opportunity to experience new challenges, including hanging on the bar for as long as German gymnast, Fabian Hambüchen, to testing their reaction speeds against times set by Italian swimmer, Gregorio Paltrinieri and UK taekwondo star, Lutalo Muhammad. They could even pit themselves against Polish handball player Karol Bielecki and French sprinter, Christophe Lemaitre!
Added to that, Bridgestone Olympic Games Ambassadors and some stars of Team GB from Tokyo 2020 visited each of the UK cities to meet visitors at the experience.
