Zac Efron surprises champion gymnast Simone Biles

Zac Efron Inspires Simone Biles? Or is it the other way around? The High School Musical actor finally meets the champion gymnast after following her Olympic events and tweeting her constantly for good luck in the competition.

Biles first revealed about her celebrity crush in an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in March where Ellen surprised her with a leotard covered with Efron?s face all over it. Ellen wanted to make sure that Biles will get the actor?s attention. And it worked!

Efron reached out to Biles through Twitter in July to wish her luck in the Olympic trials followed by several more tweets.

The actor even tweeted a photo of him making a heart with his hands with the picture of the Final Five in the background. And of course, he made sure to stand next to Biles.

After the series of tweets, the big moment finally came. And it?s not just Biles winning four Olympic golds at the 2016 Rio Olympics. She also fulfilled one of her wildest dreams?to meet Zac Efron! No matter how big an athlete she is right now, remember, she?s still a teenager.

And she didn?t just meet her crush, he also gave her a kiss on the cheek, and it is adorable! Biles was even surprised when they were taking a selfie and Efron suddenly kissed her. She captioned the photo with, ?he kissed me on the cheek just letting y?all know ?@ZacEfron ?? and ??just call me mrs.efron already @ZacEfron?

After all her achievements in the Rio Olympics, and with numerous world titles to her name, she is still human after all. And we witnessed that when she settled for bronze after a major slip at the Women?s Beam Final. And when she shrieked for joy after her ultimate crush gave her a kiss.

She may not have been successful in fulfilling her five gold medal destiny in Rio and breaking a world record, but she actually won more than that. And yes, that includes Zac Efron!

After Rio, Simone Biles emerges as a hero, an inspiration, and an athlete that every kid can look up to. She is the first Simone Biles. Not the next Michael Phelps or the next Michael Jordan, but ultimately, the first of her name and skill.
