American gymnast, Simone Biles, received a visit from her celebrity crush, Zac Efron on Wednesday. Biles have won four medals at the Olympic Games in Rio 2016 making her the most successful gymnast of her generation. 

Simone Biles has won medals on everything single event she has participated in the last three years.  At the Olympic Games, she maintained that record by winning gold medals in Women’s Vault, Women’s team all-around, Women’s floor exercise, Women’s individual all-around and Bronze medal in Women’s beam.

Before the Olympic Games 2016, Biles asked Efron to come to Rio to see the American gymnastics team compete in the team finals on the “Today” show. The message got the Star’s attention, but he couldn’t make it to the finals. Efron was cheering from the United States.

The last day for gymnastic competitions was on Tuesday. Biles performed on the floor exercise final to win her last gold medal. She became the first American to win four gold medals in a single Summer Olympic games. The Gymnast also became the fifth women in history to achieve the four gold medals.

That same day Efron arrived in Rio. The star of Neighbors and the High School Musical franchises surprised the gymnastic team after the competition. 

NBC’s Bob Costas asked Simone Biles and Alexandra Raisman if they had anything to say about the contest, and they jokingly answered they could only talk about Efron.

The female Gymnastic team was thrilled with Efron’s visit. Even though they are an elite gymnastic team, the female team got starry-eyed when they first saw Efron. The movie star also invited the whole team to eat pizza and french fries with him.

Biles Twitter feed was filled with pictures and videos regarding Efron’s visit. One video featured Efron kissing Biles on the cheek. “Just call me Mrs. Efron already,” posted Biles on her Twitter account. Other pictures included hugs and smiles between Efron and Biles.
