She has a point, but wow, practicing carrying the flag was :rolleyes:
Now if a woman gets the honor is it b/c it's deserved or to placate NC?

Does anybody give a shite if she boycotts the opening ceremony?

I do. If she doesn't go because it's too far from her event (so she's not in the country), that's one thing. A boycott because she didn't get what she wants, that's disrespectful, and I think she should be kicked off the team, or at least fined a lot of money for not representing her country to the best of her ability. Seriously. She's not there representing just herself, but Australia. What a bad sport, and the games haven't even begun!

I really don't want her to be our flag bearer now, man, woman, I don't give a toss, as long as it's not her. I also don't think a woman should be chosen just for the sake of it - if we have more men qualified for the position, so be it. Now I do feel sorry if a woman gets chosen, because some will always think it's because of Cook. :rolleyes: A woman has been flag bearer at the last two Winter Olympics.

China's will probably be a basketball player (nothing new there), probably Yi Jianlian.

Nice honor for Chris Hoy. I'd have loved to seen Cav do it, only because he'd probably start crying with emotion and excitement, but I certainly can't fault the choice of Hoy.

It was confirmed this morning that Stanislas Wawrinka will be carrying the flag for Switzerland.

Is there an idea of who will be the flagbearer for the USA or is that a closely held secret until Friday?
