After two weeks of amazing moments, the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio will come to and end tonight.
The first Olympics in South America will come to an end at Maracanã Stadium for the Closing Ceremony. The Mayor of Tokyo, Yuriko Koike, will receive the Olympic flag symbolizing the conclusion of the Rio Olympics and the start to the 2020 Summer Games. Many details are being kept under wraps but look for five-time gymnastics medalist Simone Biles to carry the U.S. flag at the ceremony for Team USA. Norwegian electronic musical Kygo is expected to perform. Brazilian soccer legend Pele, who had hoped to attend the Opening Ceremony before he was sidelined for ill health, could potentially make an appearance on Sunday.
HOW TO SEE IT: NBC will air coverage of the Closing Ceremony from 8 p.m. ET to 10:30 p.m. Watch it live here.
