Khatuna Lorig carries the US flag in the closing ceremony

She’s been part of the Unified Team of the former Soviet States.

She’s been part of the Georgian Olympic team

And now she’s an American, and better still, she’s carrying the flag for the US team in the closing ceremony.

It’s a great honor, voted on by the athletes themselves. She’s been living a bit of the American dream as have many other recent immigrants, and she’s said carrying the flag is as important to her as winning a gold medal.
