Leslie Jones loves the Olympic Games, so it was no surprise for NBC to announce that Jones will be a contributing reporter for the 2018 Winter Olympics.
Leslie Jones is a hilarious comedian and actor who you might know from Saturday Night Live and Ghostbusters, but she’s also got another super important achievement on her resume: the biggest Olympics enthusiast in the country. During the 2016 Olympics in Rio, Jones live tweeted most of the events, and her infectious enthusiasm caught the attention of NBC, who flew her out to cover the last few days of the event.
This year, however, NBC is getting the most out of Jones’ love for the Olympics, and is bringing her Pyeongchang, South Korea as a contributing reporter covering the games. Jones announced her return to the games on her Twitter account with a hilarious video of her “skiing” to prepare for the Winter Olympics.

NBC was also quick to celebrate Leslie Jones’ triumphant return to Olympic coverage with a video of some of her best moments during the Rio Olympics.

Whether or not you get excited about the Olympics, you have to admit that Jones’ excitement and enthusiasm for the games is just infectious. She did a great job adding some fun to Olympics coverage back in Rio, and we can’t wait to see what she’ll have in store for us in South Korea.
