EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Aug. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ZICO Pure Premium Coconut Water is proud of their presence at the London 2012 Olympic Games as the official coconut water supporting and hydrating select athletes and even spectators. The London 2012 Olympic Games mark the beginning of ZICO's long-term commitment to the Olympic movement. Over the coming years ZICO will look to develop unique programs and events that will bring the spirit of the Olympics to millions of naturally powered athletes, families and fans.
ZICO has always been about supporting and empowering diverse athletes across all levels of participation and competition in their sport.

One such athlete is ZICO-sponsored swimmer Mallory Weggemann, who plans to compete in 9 events at the London 2012 Paralympic Games.
The Olympic Games bring together thousands of elite athletes from around the world and ZICO is thrilled to support an event that is rooted in the core values the brand was built upon. "ZICO has always shared the Olympic Values, which include, excellence in giving the best of oneself, on the field of play or in life, taking care of one's own health and respect for the environment," said Mark Rampolla, CEO of ZICO Beverages, LLC. "We are honored to be a part of and look forward to supporting such a momentous event going forward."
