Simone definitely helped bring the team to victory, thanks to her first place scoring for the prelim on Aug. 7. Her impressive display has already caught the attention of more than one star, including Zac Efron, 28, who also complimented her abilites. He wrote, “So phenomenal a skill’s named after her. Congrats on sticking the Biles and qualifying for the finals@Simone_Biles!” The pint-size gymnast recently admitted that she keeps a life-size cutout of the Neighbors actor in her room, so this must have made her day! Now, with Tay’s added comment, she and the “Fab Five” must be shooting through the roof!

The ladies defeated Russia by more than eight points on Aug. 9 — certainly making this a monumental win. Aside from that, this will be the gymnasts’ last time attending the big games as a group of five. In 2020, teams can only consist of four athletes at the Tokyo Olympics. Hence, why they decided on their epic nickname “the final five.” OMG! Luckily, we can revel in the greatness we just witnessed!
