Comedian Leslie Jones Goes All Fangirl on Olympic Volleyballers

Leslie Jones

It's so hard to pick out the best moments of comedian Leslie Jones's Rio 2016 Olympics coverage. She basically earns a gold medal any time she opens her mouth! Her praise for athletes and true love of the games is infectious. 

Jones had the honor of meeting U.S. women's beach volleyball players Kerri Walsh Jennings and April Ross, and she literally bowed down before them. The pair had just made it to the quarterfinals, making them are one of four teams left vying for the gold (they have now advanced to the semifinals). Walsh Jennings has three Olympic gold medals already — no wonder Jones was awestruck.
