Yelling 'Katie Ledecky' Is The New Way To Cheer For Team USA During Any Sport


An Olympic commentator has just created a new exclamation, and we couldn't be happier.

Staff over in Rio must be getting spread too thinly to cover all the events, because one volleyball commentator completely forgot where he was and randomly yelled "KATIE LEDECKY" during a match.

I hope it's a combination of all three.
