Leslie Jones has been in the comedy game for a while, though she became a household name fairly recently with her breakout presence on Saturday Night Live and role in this year鈥檚 Ghostbusters remake. This month she proved to anyone who didn鈥檛 already know it that she鈥檚 got even more tricks up her sleeves: Her tweets following the Olympics, and especially the successes of Team USA, have been a pleasure to behold.

From marvelling at the strength gymnasts need for performing on the rings to supporting swimmers, Leslie has been all over the Olympics since they began last week. And while she鈥檚 focused on the US athletes, she鈥檚 been happy to show some love to competitors from other countries as well. Overall, Leslie鈥檚 Twitter feed has just been one excited, encouraging space.

Two of the tweets that started it all, showing everyone the kind of enthusiasm she鈥檇 be bringing to her impressively comprehensive live-tweeting (seriously, which events haven鈥檛 Leslie covered?):

After Ginny Thrasher scored the first gold medal for the US, Leslie was as thrilled as the rest of us:

And here鈥檚 some of her output while watching the USA women鈥檚 gymnastics team. You can tell how nervous she is for them!

Leslie says what we鈥檙e all thinking about soccer.

Perhaps it was Leslie鈥檚 good-natured ribbing of Bob Costa鈥檚 commentary, as seen below, that caught the eye of NBC execs. In any case, she was invited down to Rio to participate in the network鈥檚 coverage, and she鈥檒l be joining in today.

The excitement in her tweets is sure to increase once she鈥檚 at the Games, especially because she鈥檒l be seeing events live and meeting athletes! And we already know Leslie is a magnetic presence on camera, of course, which makes the promise of watching her cover events even better. She鈥檚 going to give Bob Costa a run for his money.

If we were down there competing, one thing鈥檚 for sure: We鈥檇 want a pre-game pep talk from Ms. Leslie Jones.
