Leslie Jones Will Be Team USA’s Hypewoman During the Winter Olympics

Jones is no stranger to Olympics coverage: In 2016, she made her debut as an NBC Olympics contributor during the Rio Summer Games after her live tweets of events with witty commentary—and a photo of her decked out in a American flag and plastic gold medals—caught the eye of NBC Olympics production and programming president Jim Bell.

“Experiencing the Olympics through the lens of Leslie is unlike anything else,” Bell said in a statement Tuesday. “Her passion for Team USA is contagious, and her adventures in South Korea should be fascinating.”

Jones already is gearing up for the games, which kick off Feb. 8. On Monday, she tweeted a video of herself working out in full Team USA gear and a medal. “SLAY ALL DAY!!” she added.

Jones is also well known for sharing her passions on social media, including the Olympics, Game of Thrones, and New York Fashion Week.
