Simone Biles was given the honor of carrying the U.S. flag during the Closing Ceremony.

Gymnast Simone Biles conquered the world at the Rio Olympics, so it makes sense that she got a shout-out from the commander in chief.

After Biles carried the U.S. flag at the Closing Ceremony on Sunday, President Barack Obama reached out to her via Twitter. 

Biles, who won four golds and a bronze in Rio, scored points yet again with a brief, emphatic response.

And go, Simone!

It’s good to be “the greatest gymnast ever.”
