NBC Sports' Leigh Diffey has one of the most versatile and instantly recognizable voices in sports broadcasting. Australian-born, Diffey has been in the United States for more than 20 years covering everything from Track & Field at the Olympic Summer Games, the Formula One World Championship, Bosbled at the Olympic Winter Games and the Indianapolis 500. His high energy commentary style coupled with a deep love of sports has been well received by the US and international viewing audiences. A sample of Leigh's Track & Field commentary was recently featured in Google's "2022 Year in Search" video.

The last time the United States had a dedicated American Formula One broadcast team, Leigh was the host & play by announcer for F1 on NBC.
