U.S. Olympian Simone Biles—the world’s best gymnast—has been selected as the official Team USA flag bearer for the closing ceremony in Rio de Janeiro on Sunday.

Biles, 19, finished the 2016 Summer Olympics with five medals, four of them gold, tying the record for the most ever obtained by a gymnast at a single Olympic Games.

The event will be televised on NBC at 8 p.m. Eastern (on a one-hour delay from the actual ceremony), 7 p.m. Central and Mountain, and 8 p.m. Pacific.

Michael Phelps, the most decorated Olympian, was the U.S. flag bearer during the opening ceremonies.
