BOULDER, Colo. – Polar Bottle and the United States Olympic Committee today announced Polar Bottle as an official water bottle licensee of Team USA.

This is the largest multi-sport affinity agreement in the history of Polar Bottle, a leading U.S. brand of insulated, reusable water bottles.

“As a homegrown developer and manufacturer of a product that encourages drinking more water and getting active, Polar Bottle is committed to supporting the goals and efforts of all Americans. Team USA athletes and hopefuls embody the same winning American combination of dreams and hard work that helped us grow as a business,” said Polar Bottle President Judy Amabile. 

Polar Bottle developed a unique insulated water bottle featuring the Team USA logo and an illustration of a golden flame on a silver background. Polar Bottle products will be made available to Team USA athletes for use during the U.S. Olympic Team Trials and Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

“Polar Bottle is a great fit for Team USA and an important addition to our growing roster of licensees,” said Peter Zeytoonjian, USOC managing director of consumer products. “We look forward to working with Polar Bottle to create products that serve America’s elite athletes and inspire fans of Team USA everywhere.”

“We loved the idea of American consumers owning the same U.S.-made water bottle that these incredible athletes will use for training and take with them to keep cool in Rio,” said Amabile. “It’s a tangible, affordable way for every American to support our athletes and feel closer to the Olympic and Paralympic dream.”
