The only thing to make winning gold at the 2016 Olympics that much sweeter is to get a special congratulatory tweet from one of your idols.
That’s exactly what happened to the “Final Five,” also known as team USA’s women’s gymnastics team, which took home the gold medal in the team competition earlier this week.

And when the team’s coach showed the Final Five members Swift’s tweet, they seemed pretty excited.
I just showed the girls and they about passed out from excitement. Thanks for your support! 🇺🇸 pic.twitter.com/pv8eqLZurR

Aly Raisman, the 22-year-old gymnast who won silver Thursday in the women’s all-around final, even suggested the two of them hang out if the pop star ever makes her way to Boston.
I ❤️ your song 22 because I'm 22 hehe… And next time you're in Boston lets go shopping 👌🏻👍🏻🇺🇸😋💁🏻

But nothing beats the Twitter flirtation that developed between Efron and newly crowned world champion, Simon Biles. On Tuesday, the 19-year-old gymnast took NBC News through a tour of her house where she showcased a life-sized cardboard cutout of the actor.
“Sometimes, I used to kiss him on the cheek,” Biles said.
From there, a Twitter friendship blossomed.

Thanks Zac! I hope you can watch Team Final tomorrow night.

Now that Biles and Raisman took home gold and silver, respectively, for the women’s all-around final, it won’t be long before more celebs come out to celebrate. Perhaps there will even be room for Matthew McConaughey.
