Simone Biles Finally Met Zac Efron And She Couldn't Handle It

I ship it.

If you've been watching the 2016 Summer Olympics, you've probably heard the name of one gymnast a whole lot: Simone Biles.

Biles has already cemented her legacy. She's been called the greatest gymnast ever, and she's the first American woman to win the gold on vault.

So far, Simone has won four gold medals during the Rio games and one bronze, making her the most awarded U.S. gymnast of all time.

But when Biles isn't being a badass Olympian, she spends her time with her cardboard cutout of Zac Efron, which she's been known to kiss.

And Zac himself has — from the start of the Olympic Games — supported Biles, along with the rest of the Final Five.

This week, their worlds finally collided, and it was glorious. Efron appeared on Biles' Snapchat...

Understandably, Simone couldn't handle it.
