Daraz, South Asia’s leading e-commerce dynamo, has announced its Olympic Games partnership to support the National Olympic Team of Sri Lanka. Accordingly, Daraz Sri Lanka will be working closely with the National Olympic Committee of Sri Lanka to support and help inspire the local Olympic athletes, under the theme of ‘Delivering Dreams’.
Understanding not only the value of sports, but the importance of perseverance, Daraz aims at inspiring Sri Lankans of all ages, encouraging them to pursue their dreams. By providing a platform via which they can tell their stories, Daraz is supporting our national athletes to follow their dreams. For the youth of the country, Daraz will facilitate their support by delivering dreams across Sri Lanka, as they strive towards self-fulfillment, helping them understand that nothing is impossible.
Commenting on this partnership, Daraz Sri Lanka Managing Director Rakhil Fernando stated, “As Daraz grows from strength to strength in Sri Lanka, we have a duty and responsibility to the people of the country to inspire them to pursue their dreams, and help them go from strength to strength. As we bridge the arenas of sports and e-commerce, we hope to deliver the dreams of aspiring athletes in achieving their goals with the true Olympic spirit of friendship, solidarity and fair play.”
By being the platform that connects the spheres of sports and e-commerce, Daraz has the potential to truly inspire, especially through their new role as the Official Digital Partner of the National Olympic team.
