Four-time Olympian Julie Chu will carry the U.S. flag at the closing ceremony of the Sochi Games.

The U.S. Olympic Committee made the announcement Friday, a day after Chu earned a silver medal with the U.S. women's hockey team. It was her fourth Olympic medal — she has three silvers and a bronze.

Chu says she is "completely humbled and kind of in shock" to be chosen.

A Harvard graduate, Chu has been with Team USA since the 2002 Winter Games in Salt Lake City.

The Americans lost 3-2 in overtime to Canada in the gold medal game Thursday night.
