Ryan Lochte, 2012 gold-medal winner of the 400-meter individual medley, says ‘Thank you, Mom!’
When we watch thrilling Olympic performances, filled with admiration the athletes, we think, “Wow! That was amazing!” We don’t usually think, “Wow! That person’s mom did a great job!” But Procter and Gamble made the vital role mothers play in developing an Olympian athlete the cornerstone of their “Thank you, Mom” campaign — love it! In recognition of the importance of moms and families, P&G launched its first Family Home in collaboration with the USOC at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver — a place for Team USA members to come together, have meals, watch the Olympic Games, meet other Team USA families and celebrate medal wins. Following an overwhelmingly positive response, P&G has once again opened its doors to hundreds of Team USA athletes, coaches and families at the London 2012 Olympic Games. This private “home away from home” helps keep U.S. moms connected with their athletes and families in London in a relaxed, family-friendly environment, and allows U.S. athletes the opportunity to spend invaluable time with their families during the most intense and taxing experience of their life.
