Simone Biles closed out the 2016 Rio Olympics as successfully as she spent the entirety of the games.

The 19-year-old was chosen to wave the USA flag during the Closing Ceremony on Sunday, making her country even more proud after taking home four gold medals and a bronze in gymnastics. 

Even President Barack Obama sent his appreciation to Simone.

"Couldn't be prouder of #TeamUSA," POTUS tweeted on Sunday evening. "Your determination and passion inspired so many of us. You carried that flag high tonight, @Simone_Biles!"

And Obama wasn't alone in his praise!

In fact, Simone was one of the most popular faces at the Closing Ceremony, creating a literal assembly line behind her as people came up to snap a selfie with her.

So what's next for the gold medalist? 

Rumors have been swirling that we can look forward to seeing her on Dancing With the Stars. However, she recently set the record straight in an interview with E! News' Zuri Hall, saying her busy schedule could prevent her from joining the ABC reality competition.

"I would love to do Dancing with the Stars, but so far we have a three month tour after this Olympics," Simone told us exclusively. "I'm not sure if I'll have time."

Still, Simone is hoping to eventually compete on the show once her schedule slows down and is open to joining the season 24 cast.

"I would really love to do it in the spring if that's possible." 

We hope to see her there soon!
