Meet Team Panasonic
Panasonic has a long history as a proud partner of the Olympic and Paralympic Games. As the exclusive provider of audio-video equipment, Panasonic technology has helped to power the Games for over 30 years. Throughout this time, we have had the privilege to witness the emergence of historic champions.
Being a true champion requires deep passion that goes beyond winning or athletic performance. The members of Team Panasonic were chosen for both their accomplishments in their sport and the commitments they have made to improving their communities, bringing awareness to important issues and answering the question, "How can I take an active role in moving the world forward?"
Champions. For Progress.
What does it take to be a champion? For Team Panasonic athletes, it’s believing that true progress happens along a continuum where the bar is raised each time you get closer to it. It’s a passion for progress that guides these athletes – and it steers the decisions we make at Panasonic, continually advancing technology to help move society forward.
That’s the spirit of #ForeverForward.
Champions. For Inspiration.
Team Panasonic athletes recognize the importance of the inspiration they’ve received along their journeys. Champions for Progress will highlight the people, places and forces that have touched each athlete and show how they moved them forward, allowing them to return that support to others and their communities.
It’s almost as though Nathan Chen was born to figure skate. Growing up around the ice, he’s been in the rink for almost as long as he can remember. Find out how his drive and determination made him not just an Olympic figure skater, but a champion.
Few athletes become elite champions. Fewer hold world records. Katie has achieved both measures, driven by a simple philosophy: success is determined by the work you put in. That mindset brought her gold in the 2012, 2016 and 2020 Olympic Games, as well as success in the classroom as a student. Today, she inspires young people to pursue STEM opportunities, reminding them that accomplishments are earned, luck doesn’t win medals and self-determination is the most rewarding gift you can give to yourself.
