Nick Hayek, CEO of Swatch Group, Raynald Aeschlimann, President and CEO of Omega and IOC President Thomas Bach announced the extension of Omega´s global partnership with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) through to 2032. The announcement was made at The Olympic Museum in Lausanne, Switzerland.
The deal will continue the commitment by Omega to provide state-of-the-art timing, scoring, in-venue results system, equipment and broadcast graphics services, which are critical for the success of the Olympic Games.
Omega now is on track to set a timekeeping record. The Games of the XXXV Olympiad in 2032 will mark 100 years since the start of Omega´s relationship with the event, which dates back to the 1932 Olympic Games in Los Angeles. In that time Omega has served as Official Timekeeper 27 times and has developed and introduced the most cutting-edge timekeeping equipment in the world.
By the way, Omega is the first Worldwide Olympic Partner to commit to the Olympic Movement through to 2032.
