Suni Lee‘s stunning gold medal performance has caught the attention of the world, but there was something else about her routine that stunned viewers: her nails.

Lee completed her extraordinarily complicated routine in the Tokyo Olympics with what appeared to be long acrylic nails topped with Olympic rings on them – and the internet couldn’t get enough of them.

Twitter praised the athlete not only for her stunning achievement as a gold medalist, but for doing it with her nails intact.

Lee came out on top in the women’s gymnastics all-around final in the Tokyo Olympics with a 14.600 on vault, a 15.300 on uneven bars, a 13.833 on beam and a 13.700 on floor. Lee led all competitors with a 57.433 overall and won her first-ever gold medal.

Her victory secures an American winning streak for yet another Olympics, marking the fifth straight Olympic Games an American woman has been crowned queen of the all-around.
