Simone Biles to carry US flag at Olympics’ closing ceremony
RIO DE JANEIRO — One more honor awaits Simone Biles at the Rio Games. The five-time gymnastics medalist — four of them gold — will carry the U.S. flag into Sunday’s closing ceremony, the U.S. Olympic Committee announced Saturday.
Biles was chosen by fellow U.S. Olympians in a vote. “It’s an incredible honor,” Biles said.
Biles made her Olympic debut in Rio, winning team gold and individual titles in women’s all-around, vault and floor exercise, along with a bronze on balance beam.
