Leslie Jones is heading to the 2018 Olympics in PyeongChang [pyuhng-chahng], South Korea - not as an athlete, but as a commentator, according to Deadline. The comedian will travel to PyeongChang, South Korea, as she did during 2016's Rio Summer Olympic Games.
Jones, whose avid live-tweeting and online cheerleading of Team USA during the 2016 Summer Olympics earned her a gig as an NBC contributor at those games, it looks like the Saturday Night Live amusing woman will be joining NBC for a second round. In her caption, she wrote, "Guess What Time It is Y'all!" "I'm skiing. Ya'll know what the hell's going on, you know what I'm doing". Slay All Day USA!' "I love it!" Jones tweeted, along with the video of herself draped in an American flag. This prompted NBC to book her a ticket to the games so she could join the network's official coverage of the events.
Olympics production and programming president Jim Bell said: "Experiencing the Olympics through the lens of Leslie is unlike anything else".
South Korea will not ban cryptocurrency trading, finance minister confirms
Having their markets and banks back online will allow for a flow of funds back into the crypto space, in a regulated manner. That represents a decline of about 50% from the high set in late December 2017, when Bitcoin was well over $19,000.
During the 2016 Rio Olympics, Jones gained Bell's attention after live-tweeting her Olympic viewing experience, where she offered her own comical commentary and encouragement for Team USA.
The Winter Games begin February 8 and NBC will have more than 2,400 hours of programming, including livestreams and primetime events (adjusted for the 14-hour time difference).
