Miley Cyrus is a big fan of USA slopestyle skier Gus Kenworthy

The Olympics offer the rare chance for athletes to show their skills on the international stage -- and parlay their spotlight into connecting with celebrities. We've already seen USA luger Kate Hansen get a shoutout from her idol, Beyonce.

With this, Kenworthy was given a chance to give a holler on social media to his favorite celebrity. Happens to be Miley Cyrus. This photo below was posted on Valentine's Day. As you can see above, Cyrus has taken notice, tweeting out to 17.7 million followers why they should hop on the Gus bus.

Not only that, but the white board love note worked. Guy is having quite the time  over in Sochi.
