The United States is still on an athletic high after the success of the US Gymnastics Team at this years Summer Olympics. The five medal-winning girls have become overnight superstars–especially Simone Biles. When General Hospital’s Nancy Lee Grahn spotted Biles at a restaurant, she was as excited as any fan.
Grahn shared a picture of Biles and herself on social media Wednesday, relating the story of how she saw Biles and beat out Ellen DeGeneres in her quest to meet America’s newest sweetheart.
The actress met with Biles and her family and learned the gymnast’s aunt is a big GH fan.
Nobody can tell the story quite like Grahn, so we’ll let her do it in the Facebook post below.
