Sports partnerships

Between 2008 - 2016 BP has been a proud partner of the British Olympic Association and the British Paralympic Association. We were there at London 2012 to cheer on the remarkable performances by Team GB and ParalympicsGB and we continued our support on the road to Rio.

BP began its association with Olympic and Paralympic sport when it became a partner of the London 2012 Games. Since then BP has supported a number of high-profile sporting events, including the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

BP is also a proud partner of the International Paralympic Committee, the governing body for the Paralympic Movement until 2020.

Between 2011- 2016 we also celebrated the #EnergyWithin with support for four amazing British athletes, whom we backed throughout this period:

  • Jessica Ennis-Hill, heptathlete - London 2012 Olympic champion, Olympic silver medallist at Rio 2016 and reigning World champion
  • Lizzie Deignan, cyclist - Commonwealth champion and Olympic silver medallist at London 2012
  • Richard Whitehead, runner - double Paralympic champion, triple World champion and world record holder across multiple distances
  • Stef Reid, long jumper - multiple Paralympic medallist and former European champion in the long jump T44
