Golden girl Simone Biles finally meets celebrity crush Zac Efron
The most successful gymnast in Rio finally gets to meet High School Musical star.Updated:
Life’s good if you’re Simone Biles.
The 19-year-old became the first woman in 32 years, and fifth overall, to win four golds at a single Games with a win in Tuesday’s floor exercise final.
But that wasn’t all.
Less than an hour later, Biles got to meet her celebrity crush Zac Efron for the first time.

AND got a kiss on the cheek!
Now, for those up-to-date on their entertainment news, you’d know Tuesday’s meeting came as a fresh chapter in the duo’s social media love story.
The High School Musical star has been rooting for Biles all through the Olympics...
... and flew out to Rio to meet the USA gymnastic team in person.
Biles first made her admiration public on The Ellen DeGeneres Show back in March. Ellen asked, “Is it just ‘cause he’s gorgeous, is that why you like him?” Pat came the reply, “Yes!”
Ever-so-considerate Ellen then gifted Biles a leotard covered with Efron’s face.
The Leotard wouldn’t be the first weird Efron-themed paraphernalia for Biles, who has her own life-size cutout of the actor in her bedroom.
“Sometimes I used to kiss him on the cheek,” Biles told NBC before the Olympics. Don’t judge, she’s 19.
Well, this could be the start of something new.
