Leslie Jones Contributing to NBC's Winter Olympics Coverage

"Saturday Night Live" star and Olympics super fan Leslie Jones will be joining NBC in its coverage of the upcoming Winter Olympics in South Korea. Much like she did in Rio, she'll attend multiple events and meet and greets with athletes, and obviously, provide plenty of hilarious, boisterous commentary along the way.

"Experiencing the Olympics through the lens of Leslie is unlike anything else", said Jim Bell, President, NBC Olympics Production and Programming. Watch Jones's excited announcement below for a taste of her PyeongChang coverage to come.

Jones' last traveled to Rio, Brazil to cover the 2016 Summer Olympics - and thus her signature (Beyonce-truncated) SLAY ALL DAY catchphrase was born.

The 50-year-old comedian also posted a video of herself dressed in the American flag's design, while holding an American flag and wearing plastic gold medals.

The MLS club expressed interest a year ago before Ibrahimovic went down with a knee injury in April. And now French paper L'Equipe claim he has already put pen to paper on a deal to join Galaxy.


Bell noticed the comedian's enthusiasm on Twitter and extended an invite for her to join the network's team in Rio. "I would have the whole Olympics pumped!"

Jones has already started her Olympics tweeting, and looks like she's getting her ski legs ready.

Jones confirmed the news on social media herself while donning patriotic Team USA gear from head to toe. "Guess what time it is y'all!" "I'm skiing. Ya'll know what the hell's going on, you know what I'm doing".
