Olympic “Wearables” Will Change The Way You Pay


Bobsled Driver Seun Adigun Teams Up with Visa to Introduce New Payment-Enabled Wearables at the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018

With the opening ceremonies of the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in South Korea just two months away, another amazing story of the competitive spirit has emerged. The Nigerian Women’s Bobsled Team is training to become the first team of any kind from Nigeria, to qualify for the Winter Olympics in Bobsled. Against all odds, this team’s dream is on the verge of coming true, despite coming from a country where it never snows!

It’s a unique story, which makes Nigerian Bobsled Driver Seun Adigun the perfect athlete to unveil a ‘unique’ new line of payment-enabled wearables, which will be debuted at the Winter Games. Visa, the exclusive payment technology partner of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, is introducing three new wearable, payment-enabled devices. A glimpse into the future of how we will all be paying someday, Visa has created NFC-enabled payment gloves, commemorative stickers and Olympic pins, which all allow seamless and secure payments with a simple tap at any contactless-enabled payment terminal.
