Honoring our U.S. Olympic and Paralympic athletes
O.C. Tanner has been proud to design and create the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Team rings since the year 2000. Doing so is our way of recognising achievement on an Olympic scale. We are inspired by people who push the limits to succeed. Who exemplify motivation, sacrifice and extraordinary teamwork. Plus, getting to make beautiful 14K gold rings for these young men and women is…just cool. It's something our whole company gets excited about.
“Our social media contest to honor individuals who supported, encouraged and believed in Team USA athletes drew more than 1,000,000 votes online.”
The Inspiration Award
The O.C. Tanner Inspiration Award honors those behind-the-scene mentors who will never receive a medal of their own. But instead make it possible for someone else.
We received 48 nominations from 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Team USA athletes. More than 1,000,000 votes were cast online to select the individuals who supported, encouraged and believed in Team USA athletes.
Selected honorees received The Inspiration Award, a 14K gold commemorative ring bearing the laurel crown from the ancient Olympic Games, designed by O.C. Tanner.
