American Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy made hearts everywhere flutter when he made plans to adopt a couple of Sochi’s stray puppies. Kenworthy has even drawn some interest from a young celebrity — Miley Cyrus.
Kenworthy had a pretty awesome week last week, winning a silver medal in slopestyle and landing on the cover of a Corn Flakes box with a couple of his U.S. skiing teammates. Kenworthy decided to cap to week off by reaching out to his celebrity crush on Twitter, and much to his surprise, she took notice.
A few days later, Kenworthy tweeted that Cyrus had followed him, and he used a solid Miley pun in the process.
Well this just hit me like a wrecking ball... @MileyCyrus Hi! You're the best :) http://t.co/1E8xh5eWy5— Gus Kenworthy (@guskenworthy) February 16, 2014
Miley apparently appreciates a guy who loves animals, and tweeted out a photo of the skier with four of the adorable pups.

Is there a running clock in Olympic hockey? If not, there probably should be. twitpic.com/dvu9tm— BuzzFeed Sports (@BuzzFeedSports) February 17, 2014
