El Segundo, Calif.-based Zico Beverages LLC’s same-named coconut water brand announced a sweepstakes through which fans can enter to win a trip for them and a friend to attend the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games and meet 2006 Olympic champion Julia Mancuso.

The winner will receive round-trip tickets to Russia, a four-night stay in a hotel overlooking the Black Sea, and tickets to some of the most popular Olympic events including snowboarding, speedskating and alpine skiing. The sweepstakes runs through Nov. 21, and fans can enter at zico.com/sochi2014.

Mancuso, who will compete in alpine skiing at the Winter Olympics, will represent Zico as a brand ambassador.

“Zico has already been an amazing partner hydrating me on and off the slopes," Mancuso said in a statement. "Now, they're giving two winners a chance to come to Sochi. How cool is that?"

Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Zico Beverages LLC Mark Rampolla added in a statement: “Zico has always supported athletes at every level by providing them with the naturally replenishing powers of coconut water. We're honored to be part of the world's most prestigious sporting event and to be hydrating the top athletes in the world.”

Additionally, from now through the Sochi Winter Games, Mancuso will share her training tips and favorite Zico recipes on the brand’s Facebook page.

Through its relationship with The Coca-Cola Co., Atlanta, Zico is the official coconut water of the Olympic Games.
