The United States Olympic Committee provided all Olympic sponsors with free rein to design a surfboard to celebrate the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. My surfboard design draws three connections — to Chobani, the USA, and Rio. I used the iconic outline of the Chobani cup to mimic the cobblestone streets of Rio’s Copacabana and Ipanema boardwalks while tying in the American flag and strong Chobani branding.

These Olympic surfboards were displayed at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and will be hung in the Team USA house during the Olympic Games.
