For Each Olympic Success A Reward

25 July 2012

Praha, July 20, 2012 - Each Czech Olympic athlete who earns a medal at the Olympic Games will receive a special reward. General Partner of Czech Olympic Team, Pilsner Urquell will give free beer for a year to every successful sportsman.

"I like the special motivation for Olympic athletes, and I am convinced, none of them will protest," František Dvořák, Vice-chairman of Czech Olympic Committee, said with a smile. "I hope that most athletes from our 130 person team will earn this reward."

"As a proud partner of the Czech Olympic team, we honour Coubertin's motto and salute all sportsmen who take part in the Games. We will gladly reward any medal won by the Czech Team in London," Pilsner Urquell brand General Manger Jan Šolta explained. "The Czech Republic has many candidates with a strong chance to stand on the winners' steps. We will cheer for all of them, and perhaps we will be able to reward many of them with our golden brew."

Pilsner Urquell prepared beer rewards for the athletes in exchange for medals. Czech Olympic Team fans have a chance to sign a symbolic Olympic Contract available at www.spravnehodnoty.cz reminding them of the true value of sportsmanship and life.  And by doing so they can also enter the contest for special prizes from Dana Zátopková, Květa Pecková-Jeriová, and other sportsmen.
