In case you haven’t noticed, the 2012 London Olympics are in full swing. What have you got to show for the international pride? If you’re an iPhone 4 or 4S owner, you’re in luck; Trü Protection is offering to giveaway one of each Spirit of Competition iPhone case away to three lucky readers! It’s a hard plastic case with Olympic-themed designs stylish enough to dress your gadget for the right season. Even when the Olympics is long gone, the Worldview print, which consists of various national flags, makes a wonderful statement about international convergence. Each case also runs for $30, so why not try at your chance to score one for free?

To be considered to win one of three Spirit of Competition iPhone cases, we want to hear an anecdote about your Olympian spirit moment: Tell us an inspirational story of when you felt you were a positive role model in someone’s life.

It could be to your younger siblings, a group of friends who look up to you, or even a stranger you chatted with one day while waiting for the train. By keeping up positive attitude, friendliness, open-mindedness, and listening to those who just need a friend, you could make a difference in someone’s life much like Olympians inspire in the fields. Again, we have three cases to give away so if you can make us cry a little from your story, the better your chances are of swaying me into handing over our precious prize. Contest ends Wednesday, August 8th at 12 a.m. pacific time. Get inspirin’!
