Leslie Jones provided such good Twitter commentary during the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio that NBC sent her to Brazil to assist with coverage.

Now she’s back, as a correspondent in PyeongChang.

The “Saturday Night Live” cast member missed the first few days of the Games, staying in New York to attend the premiere for the movie “Black Panther” at the Museum of Modern Art on Tuesday, but she tweeted from the Korean Air desk at the airport, about to make her departure on Thursday.

Now the Games can really begin. It’s a long flight but, in anticipation of Jones’s arrival and first on-the-ground reports, let’s relive some of her best moments from Rio.

Such as when she dressed to impress.

Or when the water polo team gave her a warm-up suit and she ate nachos in it.

Or when she got volleyball stars Kerri Walsh Jennings and April Ross pumped up.

Or when she was psyched to meet Katie Ledecky’s mom.

Or when she danced in the stands.

Slay all day, Leslie. Slay all day.
