SOCHI, Russia - Four-time Olympian Julie Chu carried the United States flag into the Fisht Stadium as the representative of the 2014 U.S. Olympic Team to close the Sochi Olympic Winter Games tonight.

Chu walked with representatives from the dozens of countries and hundreds of athletes who marched into the stadium to thunderous applause.

“I'm completely humbled and kind of in shock; I never imagined that this would happen, especially knowing how strong the U.S. delegation is,” said Chu, who won her third silver medal. “Our team has so many inspiring athletes who I've gotten a chance to root for. This is special and I don't take it lightly. Thank you for this great honor.”
