One more honor awaits Simone Biles at the Rio Games.
The five-time gymnastics medalist — four of those medals were 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. She’s one of only four women, and the first American, to win four golds in a single Olympics.
The 19-year-old gymnast took to Twitter to share the news with her admitted celebrity crush, actor Zac Efron.
