From the looks of her recent social media posts, singer-songwriter Taylor Swift is a big fan of the Tokyo Olympics.
Not only did she congratulate seven-time Olympic medalist Simone Biles on Twitter (which we’ll get to in a minute), but she’s also taken her love of the Games to your television screens.
That’s right, that’s TSwift you’ve been hearing narrating a series of Olympics promos.

Biles isn’t closing the door to the 2024 Paris Olympics
Biles capped off her journey in Tokyo with a bronze medal on the balance beam. But that event may not be the end of her Olympic career.
“I’m keeping the door open,” she told Hoda Kotb on “TODAY” when asked if the balance beam final was the last time she would compete at the Olympics. “I think I have to relish and take this Olympics in and recognize what I’ve done with my career because after 2016 I didn’t get to do that.”
