Evgenia Medvedeva is one of the best figure skaters in the world, and thanks to the Olympics coverage, the world has also learned that she’s a huge fan of K-pop. Now, after winning a silver medal in the individual figure skating event to go with her silver from the team competition, she received what might have been an even bigger thrill for the 18-year-old Russian.

She got to meet one of her favorite groups at the closing ceremony, EXO.

It was, in her own words, a dream come true.

She also got a keepsake from the supergroup.

How much does she love K-pop? This clip from NBC’s Olympics coverage explains it all (hint: she loves K-Pop a lot). Oh, and she happens to dig anime, in particular Sailor Moon, as well.

Said Medvedeva: “I’m listening o K-pop. J-pop. I don’t understand [the] languages, but I enjoy the sound.”

And she enjoys dancing to the sound.

Perhaps Medvedeva only won silver in the competition, but there’s no doubt that by meeting EXO, she struck gold.
