Miley Cyrus tweets Olympic medalist Gus Kenworthy after his Valentine's Day appeal

Well, this should earn American skier Gus Kenworthy a party in the U.S.A.

After winning a slopestyle silver medal in Sochi, the athlete from Telluride, Colo., took to Twitter on Valentine's Day for a chance at first place in the heart of pop princess Miley Cyrus.

Because hey, if there's ever a time to appeal for a date with the world's most famous pop starlet, it would be right after you score an Olympic medal for your country:

After a few days with no response from his celebrity crush, Kenworthy finally heard back on Sunday from Miss Miley herself, in a tweet that he claims "hit me like a wrecking ball":

The truth is, even if he hadn't hit the medal stand in Sochi or gotten a Twitter shoutout from Miley, Kenworth already would have worked his way into the hearts of many spectators with his attempts to save stray puppies in Sochi.

The town reportedly has set out to rid the area of stray dogs, and some volunteers are trying to rescue the animals from death. Kenworthy, though, has decided to take matters into his own hands -- literally and figuratively.

When it comes to saving puppies, Kenworthy would likely tell us, "We can't stop."

And maybe that's what Miley sees in him:
