EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Nov. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ZICO Pure Premium Coconut Water is thrilled to announce a sweepstakes where one lucky fan and a friend will win the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to attend the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games and meet 2006 Olympic champion Julia Mancuso. The partnership with Mancuso, which was announced in July, is a natural fit. Thanks to their relationship with the Coca-Cola Company, ZICO is the Official Coconut Water of the Olympic Games, and Julia has been enjoying ZICO as her go-to post-workout renewal beverage for years. Mancuso will represent ZICO as a brand ambassador and enjoy ZICO Pure Premium Coconut Water as the official beverage fueling her Olympic training.
The winner will receive round-trip tickets to Russia, a 4-night stay in a hotel overlooking the Black Sea, and tickets to some of the most popular Olympic events – including snowboarding, speed skating, and, of course, alpine skiing, in which Julia will be competing. The sweepstakes runs through November 21, and hopeful fans are encouraged to enter for their chance to win at ZICO.com/Sochi2014.
"ZICO has already been an amazing partner hydrating me on and off the slopes," said Mancuso. "Now, they're giving two of winners a chance to come to Sochi! How cool is that?"
"ZICO has always supported athletes at every level by providing them with the naturally replenishing powers of coconut water," said CEO and founder of ZICO Beverages LLC., Mark Rampolla. "We're honored to be part of the world's most prestigious sporting event and to be hydrating the top athletes in the world."
Additionally, from now through Sochi Winter Games, Mancuso will be sharing her training tips and favorite ZICO recipes on ZICO's Facebook page, giving fans an inside look at the life of an Olympic athlete.
