Simone Biles Finally Met Her Crush Zac Efron And It Was Adorable

Simone Biles is having the best Olympics ever! First of all, she won four gold medals and one bronze. But to top it all off she got the chance to meet her celebrity crush, Zac Efron, E! Online reports. The moment was extremely adorable with Biles getting a kiss on the cheek from the hunky actor

It was no secret that Simone Biles had a huge crush on Zac Efron. Ellen DeGeneres brought it up when she interviewed the world gymnastics champion on her show in March.

“You have a crush on someone I heard. And he’s one of my favorite people too. Who is it?” DeGeneres asked.

“Zac Efron,” Simone said with a big smile and a giggle.

“Is it just ’cause he’s gorgeous, is that why you like him?” Ellen DeGeneres continued.

“Yes!” Simone replied enthusiastically.

We’re not sure how Zac Efron heard about Simone Biles’ crush on him but after she appeared on Ellen, he tweeted his admiration for her skills during the Olympic qualifying rounds.

“So phenomenal a skill’s named after her,” Efron tweeted. “Congrats on sticking the Biles and qualifying for the finals @Simone_Biles!”

The adorable meeting between Zac Efron and Simon Biles caps off a pretty spectacular Olympics for the 19-year-old star gymnast. On Tuesday, Biles picked up her fourth gold medal winning the floor exercise with an incredibly difficult routine. Her U.S. gymnastics teammate Aly Raisman placed second with a score of 15.5 and Great Britain’s Amy Tinkler won bronze.

According to Yahoo Sports, this gold medal means that Simone Biles has become the first female gymnast since 1968 to win four out of a possible six gold medals at a single Olympic Games. She also won gold in the team, all-around, and vault events in Rio and picked up the bronze in the individual balance beam event.

Only two other female gymnasts have won four golds at a single Olympic Games: Vera Caslavska of then Czechoslovakia (1968) and Agnes Keleti of Hungary (1956).

Her winning routine in the floor exercise means that an unfortunate slip during the individual balance beam event is pretty much forgotten. Her performance on the balance beam was good enough to earn her a bronze medal, but it ended her quest to be the first female gymnast to earn five gold medals at an Olympic Games. However, as the Daily Mail notes, Simone Biles’ five medals make her the most successful female American gymnast in history.

“Her height [on jumps] is very superior to anyone I have ever seen in my life,” said 73-year-old Bela Karolyi, veteran gymnastics coach who has trained the likes of Nadia Comaneci and Mary Lou Retton.

As Yahoo Sports reports, Simone’s floor routine had the highest degree of difficulty among her competitors, an 8.933. Aly Raisman’s routine had a 8.675 degree of difficulty.

“She really ranks on the top,” Marta Karolyi, Bela’s wife and coaching partner, said of Simone. “For me, Nadia Comaneci is our first Olympic champion and then Simone as my last Olympic champion, those are the two.”

For Simone, however, this could be just the beginning. She’s 19 now but she could still qualify for the next Olympic Games in four years. For now though, she seems content to soak up the success she’s had in Rio 2016.

“It’s been a long journey,” Biles said to the Daily Mail. “I’ve enjoyed every single moment of it. I know our team has. It’s been very long in competing so many times. It got tiring. But we just wanted to end on a good note.”
