Bridgestone is the only Worldwide Olympic and Paralympic Partner with its global headquarters in Tokyo, so we will be embracing this long-awaited spectacle on every front. We're incredibly proud of our Bridgestone ambassador and are inspired everyday by their relentless hard work, dedication and perseverance that have led to this moment. We are honoured to have them as a part of the Bridgestone team.
We wish all our ambassadors competing in Tokyo 2020 every success.
Proud to help deliver the best Olympic Games possible
Our contribution to the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020
We are enormously proud to help deliver what's to be one of the most efficient and sustainable games possible, for our athletes, the fans, and the host city. We are providing our products to all of the Tokyo 2020 fleet vehicles, plus thousands of our employees are volunteering to help too.
Advanced Earthquake Protection
In the extension of our rubber-expertise, Bridgestone is helping to ensure Earthquake-Ready Venues for the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020. We installed Seismic isolation technology in new permanent structures that will host swimming, diving, artistic swimming, volleyball and wheelchair basketball.
Bridgestone is also helping to develop a new kerbstone design that allows buses to pull closer to the kerbs. This includes a design with a specially-engineered slope that interacts more smoothly with the shape of the tyre, decreasing sidewall wear and vibration.
No one is born an Olympian. Olympians are made. They are moulded from more than strength and speed, they are made from something else. They express absolute focus on the road to their dreams. For decades we’ve been keeping and recognizing those on track. Whatever their journey, no matter the conditions, this is our passion. So whatever you want to achieve, Olympic glory or an everyday goal, keep going. Stay true. Chase your dream, no matter what.
