Olympian Julie Chu represents U.S. in Games' closing ceremony

By Julianne Cassidy. CREATED Feb 23, 2014

Julie Chu of the American women's silver-medal hockey team was selected to represent Team USA at the Olympics closing ceremony Sunday.

Chu will walk proudly as Team USA's official flag bearer, yet told "Today's" Lester Holt instead of a flag pole, "I'm trying to finagle a hockey stick. I don't know if they'll let me."  

"I'm so humbled," said four-time medalist Chu. "I don't even know how to express it," further reports "Today." 

NBC airs the closing ceremony for U.S. viewers on a taped delay beginning at 8:30 p.m. EST on Feb. 23.
