Taylor Swift narrated a brand-new promotional video for NBC‘s coverage of the Tokyo Olympics.
In the video, released ahead of the women’s all-around gymnastics event on Thursday, the singer offered support and words of encouragement to the Team USA gymnasts.
“Life can surprise you. It can humble you. It can test you. It can inspire you,” Swift says in the promo. “They didn’t expect this to be the story. But that doesn’t mean they weren’t ready for the spotlight.”
“They’ve worked for this. They’ve dreamed about this. They belong here. So don’t be surprised as the story takes flight from here, in the women’s all-around in Tokyo,” she adds.
The promo ends with gymnasts Sunisa Lee and Jade Carey flashing across the screen
The video features footage from Team USA’s training sessions as the soundtrack of the title song from Swift’s Evermore album plays in the background.
Lee would go on to win the gold medal in the women’s individual all-around gymnastics final.
