An Olympic Athlete Changed His Name to an Underwear Brand in Exchange for Sponsorship
Back in 2008, Princess Salote of the island nation of Tonga put out a call to her people asking for one brave athlete to step forward and train to become the country's first Winter Olympian.

This is essentially the same as Coca-Cola agreeing to sponsor Michael Phelps and forcing him to change his name to CokeSprite Johnson.
