Coca-Cola has been available at the Olympics since the beginning of time, or so it would seem. One factoid you learn when visiting the World of Coca-Cola in Pemberton Place is that Coke has since 1988 sponsored the official pin trading centers at the Olympics.

In 1996, when Atlanta hosted the Centennial Olympic Games, Coca-Cola was were 1.2 million visitors wanting to do some pin trading. 

That's a lot of pin trading!

While you're at the pin exhibit, be sure to have a friend (or other visitor) take a photo of you with a real Olympic Torch.
