Big Four firm Deloitte announced its sponsorship of six athletes preparing to compete in the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games in Tokyo.

The Deloitte Team includes five athletes preparing to return to the Olympics and Paralympics, as well as one athlete hoping to compete in the inaugural surfing competition at the summer games.

The sponsored athletes exemplify Deloitte’s values of “leadership, drive, integrity, and commitment to excellence,” according to a release from the consultancy.

"Deloitte is proud of our long-standing collaboration with the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee (USOPC) to bring invaluable opportunities to athletes," Joe Ucuzoglu, CEO of Deloitte US, said. "The spirit of the Olympics unites all of us as champions of sport and inclusivity, and we are thrilled to be a part of the journey of these six tremendous and inspiring athletes to the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020."

Deloitte has been an active sponsor of US Olympic athletes since 2009, and has “helped the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee explore new possibilities to strengthen its mission of empowering athletes and inspiring all Americans,” a press release stated.
