Simone Biles Selfies Delay Closing Ceremonies

Simone Biles was certainly one of the biggest success stories of the 2016 Rio Olympics.

So when the 19-year-old gymnast was asked to hold the American flag during the Closing Ceremonies, her fellow Olympians viewed it as a chance to get their moment with the four-time gold medal winner.

However, so many people wanted to snap a selfie with Simone that the entire event ended up being delayed!

Later, President Obama congratulated Biles on her epic Olympics and her performance at the Closing Ceremonies, and she responded like a true champion.

We hope to see Simone in Tokyo come 2020!
