Cooper, who played D1 soccer at Boston University, said, “As a former athlete, the chance to cheer on the world’s greatest athletes at the Olympics is beyond thrilling. I am so excited to be partnering with NBC and Peacock to present this interactive watch-party format for the first time from the Olympics, designed to bring audiences even closer to the excitement of in Paris. We are going to have so much fun.”
