Julie Chu to be U.S. flag bearer at Sochi Olympics Closing Ceremony
Feb 21, 5:45am EST
On Thursday, U.S. women’s hockey player Julie Chu dealt with the anguish of coming up just short of finally beating Canada, instead settling for silver. Her trip to Sochi won’t end on a down note, however, as the 31-year-old will be the United States flag bearer for the Closing Ceremony.
Chu is a four-time Olympian who has won three silver medals (including 2014) and one bronze. While losing that overtime gold game to Canada clearly stings, she’s still proud of what she accomplished alongside her teammates.
Thank you everyone for the overwhelming support this entire Olympic Games. I am so blessed to be a part of this team. My sisters #TeamFirst
