Taylor Swift has been pretty quiet on social media lately, but she broke her nearly month-long Twitter silence on Wednesday to send some love to the gold medal-winning U.S. women’s gymnastics team.

“Sending my biggest congratulations to Simone, Aly, Laurie, Gabby and Madison! YOU DID IT GIRLS!! #FinalFive,” Swift wrote.

On Tuesday, the U.S. team took home Olympic gold in Rio de Janeiro. Dubbed the Final Five, the team consists of Aly Raisman, Gabby Douglas, Madison Kocian, Laurie Hernandez, and Simone Biles.

Shortly after Swift posted her tweet, Olympic gymnastics coach Aimee Boorman showed it to the newly minted gold medalists and captured their enthusiastic reactions.

This marks Swift’s first tweet since posting a note in mid-July responding to a controversial lyric in Kanye West’s song “Famous.” She didn’t comment on speculation that she would release a new album this year, but her label head squashed those rumors on Wednesday.
