Taylor Swift sent an Olympian a personal good luck message.

The '22' hitmaker reached out to American freestyle skier Torin Yater-Wallace to wish him well at the Winter games in Sochi, Russia, after he named her as his celebrity crush and revealed he listens to her music during his training sessions.

In a new video for 'Entertainment Tonight,' the 23-year-old star said: "Hey, it's Taylor! I just wanted to say good luck to everybody going to Sochi. I wanted to wish all the winter athletes good luck, and Torin -- thanks for listening to my music while you practice. That's amazing."

After seeing the video, the 18-year-old Olympian said: "Whoa. She said my name."

Asked what kind of date he would take the country singer on if he ever got the chance, according to UsMagazine.com Torin replied: "We'd go to the Hickory House in Aspen and get some barbecue ribs and maybe go hot tubbing at the Ritz Carlton. And then she can come over and we can see what happens after that."

Last week Taylor received a sweet Valentine's message from American freestyle skiing slopestyle bronze medallist Nick Goepper, who posed with his medal and a whiteboard with a heart and the message: "Taylor Swift, will you be my Valentine?"

The 'Red' singer, who previously dated John Mayer, Taylor Lautner, Jake Gyllenhaal and Conor Kennedy, did not respond publicly as she spent the romantic day on Friday (14.02.14) in the studio recording. 

She posted a picture of her with producers Karl Johan Schuster and Max Martin, which shows them celebrating with glasses of champagne, with the caption: "It was a studio Valentines Day with Max and Johan!"
