Simone Biles can now consider one more goal accomplished.

Fresh off her stunning gold medal-winning performance at the Rio Olympics earlier this month, the accomplished gymnast posed with Kim Kardashian West at the MTV VMAsjust as she hoped she would.

Biles, 19, joined fellow Final Five gold medalists Aly Raisman, Laurie Hernandez and Madison Kocian at the awards show, and the group posed for pics with Kardashian West, who promptly shared the images on Snapchat (naturally).

A day earlier, Biles told reporters at at Houston Methodist Willowbrook Hospital that she was looking forward to meeting the reality star, and could happily help support Kimye’s daughter North‘s interest in gymnastics.

“I have planned tomorrow at the VMAs to meet Kim Kardashian, and then I’m gonna send her daughter some [leotards],” Biles said.

Kardashian West supported the gymnast during her dazzling Rio run, and said her 3-year-old daughter is a fan as well.

On Sunday, the pair had a chance to express their mutual admiration during the awards show, which of course included a selfie of the pair together.
