Washington (7-4), which hit 13 of 26

RIO DE JANEIRO -- A petition was started on Change. Nike Air Max 93 Og 2018 .org for Abbey DAgostino to be the United States flag bearer during the closing ceremonies of the Olympics because of her sportsmanship during a womens 5,000 meters heat this week.New Zealands Nikki Hamblin tripped during the race, and DAgostino fell over her. DAgostinos first reaction, despite being injured, was to motivate Hamblin to get up and continue running. Both women finished the heat.Abbey DAgostino is the living embodiment of the Olympic Spirit and personifies the very best traits of the U.S.A., the petition says.DAgostino would certainly be a most worthy choice to carry the Stars and Stripes. But after suffering a torn ACL, a torn meniscus and a strained MCL in the spill, she wont be in Rio for the closing ceremonies.The U.S. flag bearer, who is voted on by fellow Team USA athletes, often has an inspiring or at least interesting story that goes beyond performance at the Games.Distance runner Lopez Lomong was one of the Lost Boys of Sudan before fleeing the country and becoming an American citizen. He carried the U.S. flag for the opening ceremonies at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. Archer Khatuna Lorig, who was born in the Republic of Georgia in the former Soviet Union, carried the flag during the closing ceremonies of those Games. Her former home was being attacked by Russia at the same time she was representing the United States, the third country for which she competed.Speedskater Joey Cheek carried the flag at the 2006 Winter Olympics closing ceremonies after donating the $40,000 he earned from medal bonuses to the international charity Right to Play. Bryshon Nellum carried the flag at the 2012 closing ceremonies in London after sprinting to a 4x100 relay silver medal despite having been shot in the leg by gang members three years earlier. After shot-putter Pat McDonald won a gold and silver in 1912, he served in World War I. He then carried the flag into the opening ceremonies at the 1920 and 1924 Olympics.And of course, Michael Phelps carried the flag during the opening ceremonies in Rio, but he has way too many medals weighing him down to do so at the closing ceremonies.With DAgostino out of the running, who should carry the flag Sunday night? Here are some worthy candidates:Simone Biles: Winner of four gold medals plus a bronze and possibly the greatest gymnast of all time.Ashton Eaton: The worlds greatest athlete is just the third Olympian to win two gold medals in the decathlon.Kayla Harrison: She was sexually molested as a girl by her judo coach and went on to win two gold medals in the sport.Bernard Lagat: A former medalist runner for Kenya, the 41-year-old father is competing in his fifth Olympics.Ibtihaj Muhammad: The fencer was a powerful role model against religious stereotyping when she became the first U.S. athlete to compete in the Olympics while wearing a hijab. She won bronze in womens team sabre.Kim Rhode: A bronze in skeet shooting here extended her streak of winning a medal to six consecutive Games.Katie Ledecky: The winner of four swimming gold medals here and, like Biles, shes still a teenager.Kristin Armstrong: She won her third gold medal in the cycling time trial one day before turning 43.David Boudia: The diver recovered from a life of drinking, drugs and depression to become a gold medalist, a husband and a father.There undoubtedly are many other worthy candidates for the honor, so good luck to the athletes who have to choose, because it wont be easy. Just dont vote for Ryan Lochte. Air Max 98 Womens .
