Simone Biles Makes History At 2016 Olympics

OLY-2016-RIO-CLOSING

A moment in black history made by Simone Biles this past Sunday during the closing ceremony of the 2016 Olympics!

Simone is the first gymnast to carry the flag since 1936 and the first African-American gymnast to ever carry the flag.
