The IOC President, Thomas Bach, today attended the unveiling of a playground donated to the children of Sochi by Worldwide Olympic Partner McDonalds as part of its legacy to the city.
The playground is designed to meet the needs of all children, including those with disabilities, enabling them to play, learn and be active and reflects the company’s belief in the importance of physical and creative play in bringing family and friends together. The company has also invited children from the host country Russia for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity in Sochi to experience the Games first hand.
The Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games marks the company’s tenth consecutive Games as the Official Restaurant. Nearly 350 Russian Olympic Champion Crew members from across the country will serve at McDonald’s two 24-hour onsite restaurants.
