With the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020 underway, Airbnb is introducing the latest videos in its Made Possible by Hosts campaign to share with the world what makes Airbnb unique: Hosts and the experience they offer to guests like you – and even Olympians and Paralympians, too.
From a romantic getaway for two Olympic fencers to a team stay during a Paralympian’s qualifying meet, below are the latest videos in the campaign that show the more human side of athletes on real trips with their loved ones, teammates and coaches.
“Lovers And Fencers”
Olympians Ysaora and Race, Hosted by Anne
Ysaora and Race, two Olympic fencers who fell in love while competing in the sport, went to Paris for their own unique version of a romantic getaway. Host Anne’s loft in the 14th arrondissement put them right in the middle of the city, where they could see the sights, and spar at them, too.
“The Whole Team”
Paralympian Blake Leeper and Team, Hosted by Richard
Paralympic sprinter Blake Leeper might compete alone, but he counts on his team to help him win. So when he had a qualifying meet in Southern California, he naturally brought everyone – from his coaches and friends to his wife and baby. Thanks to Superhost Richard and his lovely home, everyone was able to stay under one roof – together.
“Homes With Pools”
Olympians Anita and Claire, Hosted by Sarah
Anita and Claire are world-class Olympian artistic swimmers who wanted to enjoy a weekend away while maintaining their form. Thankfully, Superhost Sarah’s Sky View House came with a stunning pool and a chance to perfect their routine.
These are just a few of the millions of trips that take place on Airbnb, made possible by Hosts. And while many Olympians and Paralympians travel as guests on Airbnb, several are also Hosts, offering more than 200 Olympian and Paralympian Online Experiences, only on Airbnb.
Hosted by both competing and retired sporting heroes, these one-of-a-kind experiences allow athletes to share their passion with guests who can connect with them directly during the Olympic and Paralympic Games. For more information, visit airbnb.com/olympics.
Airbnb was born in 2007 when two Hosts welcomed three guests to their San Francisco home, and has since grown to 4 million Hosts who have welcomed more than 900 million guest arrivals in almost every country across the globe. Every day, Hosts offer one-of-a-kind stays and unique Experiences that make it possible for guests to experience the world in a more authentic, connected way.
