As the USA basketball team takes the court tonight against Tunisia, Nike aims to harness excitement around the game through its #RiseAbove hashtag campaign, despite not being a sponsor for the 2012 London games. Since the first day of US Olympic basketball on July 29, there have been over 400 tweets containing the #RiseAbove hashtag, though it is difficult to determine how many of those tweets are actually directly related to the Nike campaign.
Nike’s Jordan brand used a series of Promoted Tweets to touch base with an Olympic basketball audience in real time as the U.S. team was in action on the court. The U.S team – which includes NBA stars like Carmelo Anthony, Kobe Bryant and LeBron James – won decisively, 98-71, over France in their first Olympics 2012 game July 29.
