Speed skater signs sponsorship
Canadian speed skater Ted-Jan Bloemen has signed a sponsorship agreement with Ceek VR and ONG Social. As part of the agreement the athlete will post about his training and competitions on the ONG social media service. He will also appear in a virtual reality presentation to be developed by Ceek. In addition, Bloemen will be compensated in cryptocurrency, making him the first athlete to do so, according to the companies.
"As the VR entertainment and VR education market leader, we are thrilled to partner with speed skating's category leader, world record holder Ted-Jan Bloemen," said Mary Spio, CEO of Ceek VR. "His support for cutting-edge technologies is reflective of his proclivity for pushing the boundaries. We believe virtual reality isn't just great for our audience but will ultimately be used for training and maximizing player performance and potential."
