According to the three-year deal, Charm will work with the Chinese Skating Association (CKA), the Chinese Ski Association (CSA), the Chinese Ice Hockey Association (CIHA) and the Chinese Curling Association (CCA) to promote China's ice hockey, curling, short-track speed skating, figure skating, and freestyle skiing teams – along with five other Chinese Olympic teams.
Led by Mr. Lei Wu, the head of Charm's newly established sports marketing department, the company will work toward finding sponsorship opportunities for some of the finest Chinese athletes in each sport.
