This month, for a little over two weeks, the world has been watching as athletes from all over the globe have descended upon Rio to compete in the 2016 Summer Olympic games.  Competitors have been training to compete for the coveted Olympic medals in more than forty sports, from archery to golf to triathlon.  As the athletes, officials, and spectators have descended upon Rio and the Olympic venues, much preparation and work goes on behind the scenes to ensure the experience is world class for all involved. 

During this year’s Summer Olympic games, athletes will experience Sealed Air cleaning and hygiene innovation first hand.  Sealed Air is proud to supply the cleaning and disinfection products for over 3,600 apartments in the Olympic village and around the sports complex.  Housing cleanliness and athlete hygiene might seem like an afterthought for some, but for athletes who have trained for four years or more for this one chance to compete, it’s an important part of the equation for a successful games experience.  A competitor who arrives in Rio at the top of their sport can’t take a chance on getting sick now.  Olympic athletes have worked with their coaches to ensure their physical and mental ability are at their peak.  They’re consciously planning each and every meal, snack, and sport nutrition product to ensure their bodies are optimally prepared, fueled, and recovered for peak performance.  Sealed Air’s Diversey Care products in the Olympic village and sports complex help ensure these athletes’ hard earned hours and years of preparation don’t go to waste by keeping the venues clean and preventing the spread of disease.  In addition, the building services providers at the Rio games are fulfilling their requirements for products that provide superior sustainability and productivity benefits by using Diversey Care products that satisfy the international needs and requirements for Olympic games suppliers.

It is hard to imagine all that goes on behind the scenes to make the Olympic games a success.  However, as you watch the athletes compete for the gold medal these next few days, take a step back and think about what it takes to build and maintain a world class Olympic village.  This year in Rio, Sealed Air is proud to be a part of the experience.
