In addition to the Super Bowl, the song will also be used during the Winter Olympic Games telecast, beginning in February.

"When we met with Carrie last year to discuss the Super Bowl open, we each brought ideas," Fred Gaudelli, executive producer of NBC Sunday Night Football and the Super Bowl LII presentation, says. "Carrie presented first. After she spoke, we looked at each other and said, 'That's the one'.

"Later on, our Olympics producers listened to The Champion and decided that it would be a perfect complement for our Winter Games coverage. We are excited to highlight The Champion in two events on the global stage in February."
