There’s still a little over a month to go before Rio, but already Olympic fever is starting to take shape!

Over the weekend, U.S. gymnast and all-around badass Simone Biles reached a historical feat, becoming the first American to win four straight national titles. So impressive is her accomplishment that the last time it happened was in the early 1970s.

Biles, who’s active on Twitter and is addicted to Snapchat (who isn’t?), is already gearing up for the Olympic trials in San Jose, California, in early July where she’s going to dominate, dominate, dominate.

But she’s not afraid to reach out to her celebrity crush for some Rio love. Ahem, Zac Efron, a future Olympian is calling!
