A “Saturday Night Live” cast member who is also acknowledged as an “Olympics super fan” will be a part of NBC’s coverage of the upcoming XXIII Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang, South Korea, which begins Feb. 8.

The network announced today that Leslie Jones will reprise her contributor’s role from the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, attending live Olympic events, meeting athletes and adding her perspective to the network’s coverage on television and online.

Jim Bell, President, NBC Olympics Production and Programming, commented: “Experiencing the Olympics through the lens of Leslie is unlike anything else. Her passion for Team USA is contagious, and her adventures in South Korea should be fascinating.”
