A certain Olympic-medalist gymnast, who’s friends with popular gymnast Simone Biles, recently expressed her fandom for His Airness and proclaimed an MJ desire that she harbors in her heart.

26-year-old Simone Biles is one of the most distinguished artistic gymnasts who has won four gold, one silver, and two bronze Olympic medals to date.

Jordan Chiles made her NCAA debut in January, 2022 and shortly after that, she scored her first perfect 10 during a meet against Utah. The 22-year-old gymnast got her name from, you guessed it right, His Airness himself. Chiles’ mom was a huge Michael Jordan fan and she decided to name her daughter after the 6x NBA champion. Chiles spilled all the lesser-known facts about her during an exclusive interview with PEOPLE

During the interaction, she revealed her desire to meet MJ one day and said, “I’m crossing my fingers that I’ll actually be able to meet him and just get his advice for being somebody that looks up to him, what he gives out.”
