With the Olympic Games in full swing, people across Colorado are watching and experiencing the excitement of Team USA athletes competing from their homes as they tune into NBCUniversal’s 7,000 hours of coverage.
In Colorado Springs, the community gathered for a downtown celebration bringing the Games to life. As part of the day’s activities, we were proud to offer meet and greet opportunities with U.S. Olympians Jackie Joyner-Kersee and Bonnie Blair, and U.S. Paralympian McKenna Geer. We also hosted a Team USA interactive wall with fun family photo opportunities.
Today, Comcast is a huge partner for us in putting on this festival,” noted Colorado Springs Mayor John Suthers. “It’s perfect for them, their affiliation with NBC and Team USA, and it’s perfect for us. It’s a great combination. Frankly, we’ve had a tremendous relationship with Comcast through the years. I remember being out at the Hillside Community Center a couple of years ago with a couple of female hockey players to celebrate once again Colorado Springs’ connection to the Olympics, to NBC and Comcast. You can’t do this kind of thing without those kinds of partnerships.”
The energy here today is absolutely insane,” stated McKenna Geer during her meet and greet session at the Xfinity tent. “It is so cool to see all of the people out here, celebrating you know the Olympics that are going on right now and the Paralympics that are going to happen here in just a few short weeks.”
Thanks to all who attended and stopped by our tent.
It’s an honor to bring the spirit of Team USA and the Olympic Games home to the community in Colorado Springs and to everyone watching the Games from home with family and friends.
