As a demonstration of global unity, no event is more powerful than the Olympics. It is a chance for each of us to embrace our shared humanity and the progress that comes when the world comes together.
As nations gather for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, Samsung celebrates this moment of harmony through ‘The Anthem’. Inspired by lyrics from anthems around the world, ‘The Anthem’ salutes those who dare to defy barriers such as borders, culture, and language to unite as one.
Proud sponsor of a world without barriers.
