Superfan Leslie Jones becomes newest member of USA Water Polo team

U.S. women's water polo

Last week, Saturday Night Live cast member, and Team USA superfan, Leslie Jones tweeted her love of the robes water polo players wear to their matches.

Jones has already gotten her wish of getting to attend the Olympics, and now she received another gift – her own official Team USA water polo robe.

USA water polo tweeted to Jones a picture of the gift, but it came with one request – the team wants Jones to show up and support the U.S. women in their semifinal game Wednesday against Hungary.

Unfortunately, Jones won’t be able to attend the match, as she is leaving Rio Tuesday. But, like any good superfan, she’ll be showing her support from abroad, showing off her new robe on Twitter, tweeting “@WaterPoloUSA YUP ITS OFFICIAL!! Don’t know how this will since I can swim but we’ll figure it out! SLAY ALL DAY USA”

Members of Team USA are very excited for their new teammate. Goalkeeper Sami Hill responded to Jones’s video telling her how fly she looks in her robe.

And USA Water Polo made the roster move Twitter official, annointing Jones as “the newest member of the team.”

The women’s water polo team isn’t the first to request Jones’s presence at their game. Monday, the U.S. women’s basketball team made a video asking for Jones to attend one of their games too. Because when you need a USA superfan, who ya gonna call? Leslie Jones.
The U.S. women’s water polo team will take on Hungary Wednesday at 3:30 p.m. ET.
