Minnesotan Closing Ceremonies Flag Bearer

Minnesotan Closing Ceremonies Flag Bearer

The medal is only the second for the United States in cross-country skiing in Olympic history and the first gold.

Diggins and teammate Kikkan Randall won the United States' first-ever women's cross-country skiing medal when they captured gold in the freestyle team sprint.

"This is such an incredible honor for me", Diggins said in a statement from the U.S. Olympic Committee.

"In the final stretch I was just thinking, "Go, go, go, I'm giving it everything I had and I've got someone who I really love and care about waiting for me at the finishing line and I just want to make her proud", she said of Randall.

In addition to helping the USA make history, Diggins also posted four top-six finishes in the 2018 Olympic Games. It's so inspiring to feel the support and cheering from everyone.

PYEONGCHANG, South Korea (AP) - Jessie Diggins has one more big Olympic moment awaiting her.

"I have so much respect and admiration for everybody here and am beyond honored to be able to lead us out of these Games", Diggins said. The last time USA women were picked for both roles at a Winter Games was in 1976, when skier Cynthia Nelson and speedskater Sheila Young were the selections.

Diggins skied the final leg in Wednesday's team sprint.

For an athlete, being their country's designated flag bearer at the Closing Ceremony is a remarkable achievement.

American women have clearly led their country's gold rush in Pyeongchang. The U.S. had never won a gold medal in cross country before, and their only other medal in the discipline came from a bronze won by Bill Koch in the 1976 Olympics.

The 2018 Winter Olympics are nearing their end.
