If commentary was an Olympic sport, comedy queen Leslie Jones would be a three-time Olympic gold medalist by now. While she may not be in Tokyo reporting from the sidelines (we can only imagine her reaction if she got to speak with Caeleb Dressel), Jones has been posting premium comedic content around the clock as she cheers on her favorite athletes from home, like the rest of us. Her excitement and passion for the Olympics has kept us amped since the day it all started in July.

From hyping up Team USA before a big competition to dropping hilarious one-liners, Jones' live Olympic commentary on her social media is guaranteed to bring a smile and laugh to your face. Catch up on some of Jones' funniest Olympic moments ahead!

You know what? Not only did she state that steeplechase should have its own Olympics, but she also asked where all the men were to put their coats over the mud puddles. You're not wrong.
