Being the flag bearer in the Closing Ceremony has its privileges. But it also makes you stick out in the crowd.

Simone Biles knows this firsthand after carrying the American flag during the Rio finale Sunday night. While it was an honor to carry the flag, it also meant that selfie seekers could track her down pretty easily.

Here's a sampling of the pictures that showed up on social media:
