Leslie Jones Shows How to Cheer for Team USA

"I wanna give a shout out to Ginny Thrasher for getting us a medal...Go USA!"

Leslie Jones has taken excitement for the 2016 Rio Olympics to a new level.

The Olympics have officially been under way for less than 24 hours, and she's already making last night's opening ceremony viewing party look like total amateur hour.

Just take her less-than subtle reaction to seeing shooter Ginny Thrasher earn the United States' first gold medal in Rio. She won the 10-meter air rifle event.

With her very own patriotic ensemble and medal in hand, the comedian says in an Instagram video, "I wanna give a shout out to Ginny Thrasher for getting us a medal," adding an enthusiastic, "Go USA!"

And her passion for the games isn't tied to one particular event; the "Ghostbusters" star is a fan of swimming, cycling and most likely every other Olympic sport to come.

Jones has been documenting much of her experience watching the games on social media and adding her own hilarious commentary.

"I would so drown. I cannot swim, that's so sad," Jones narrates in one video from a women's swimming relay event.

As for her reaction to the Olympian cyclists, Leslie says, "Man, look at that s---. Look how fast they're going. That's crazy as hell. I'd skin all my knees."

If this greatness is just a sample of what we can expect from Leslie over the next few weeks, count us in.
