    The pop superstar lent her voice to a promo for the Tokyo Olympics women’s all-around gymnastics finals set to air later tonight, recapping the USA team's journey so far.

    They've worked for this. They've dreamed about this. They belong here. Couldn't have said it better ourselves, @taylorswift13. The #TokyoOlympics women's all-around. 8 p.m. ET tonight. NBC and https://t.co/FmEtvutDRA

    "Life can surprise you," Swift begins over footage of the team training. "It can humble you. It can test you. It can inspire you."

    "They didn't expect this to be the story, but that doesn't mean they weren't ready for the spotlight."

    Swift is more than likely referring to Simone Biles' withdrawal from the all-around Olympic final; teammates Suni Lee and Jade Carey have stepped up to replace her since.
