Marathon Insurance Brokers (MIB) has shored up Jamaica’s Olympic effort with a multimillion-dollar sponsorship deal ahead of the Tokyo Games in two weeks.
Having sponsored the Jamaican Olympic team to the London Games in 2012 and Rio de Janeiro in 2016, the insurance brokerage remains firm in its continued support of the nation’s athletes on the global tracks.
“Standing with our athletes is an easy decision, as they give their all on behalf of a grateful nation, so Marathon will support as best we can,” says MIB Director Keisha Burgher.
The new three-year partnership arrangement — amounting to some $12 million — with the Jamaica Olympic Association (JOA,) was signed last Wednesday.
Ryan Foster, secretary general/chief executive officer of the country’s apex sporting body, noted improved value to its membership.
