Diggins, who alongside fellow skier Kikkan Randall snagged the history-making gold medal in an exhilarating race earlier this week, was chosen by her fellow Olympians to carry the nation’s flag during the Olympics closing ceremony on Sunday night (Sunday morning stateside beginning at 6 a.m.), Team USA announced in a statement.  “I really thought there maybe had been a mistake,” Diggins told Today of the moment she got the news. “It is so humbling, and I feel so honored to have been picked.”  She added of her Olympic experience: “In my wildest dreams I don’t think I could have imagined all of this … it’s really been a dream come true.”
