1100 CI pins traded at Russia winter games

| 04/03/2014

(CNS): Young Caymanian Charles Gilman was chosen by the Cayman Islands Olympic Committee (CIOC) to create the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games pin for the Cayman Islands Team.  Cayman pins are always a hot commodity and these were no different in Russia last month. 1,100 pins were traded by the Cayman Islands team while in Sochi and 400 remained at the CIOC for purchase. Gilman also assisted the CIOC in developing the new CIOC Logo which is currently being reviewed by the International Olympic Committee (CIOC).  Charles was able to put the ideas of the CIOC Executive into one contemporary design that ties the Cayman Islands culture with the Olympic movement.

Meanwhile, the pins, available for CI$5 locally or US$10 for overseas fans, were sold out within four weeks of them becoming available. The CIOC has ordered another small batch which will be available for purchase on 1 April 1st, 2014. All proceeds from the sale of pins and Cay-Fan merchandise goes directly to funding Caymanian athletes.

The CIOC presented Charles with a Cay-Fan T-shirt, 3 Sochi Pins and a personal thank you letter.
