The Russian national team will have two flag bearers at the opening ceremony of the Olympics in Beijing.


Two flag bearers will represent the Russian team at the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympic Games in Beijing. This was stated by the President of the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) Stanislav Pozdnyakov, whose commentary is provided by the information service of the organization.


“We still have an open question about standard-bearers, - said Pozdnyakov. — Like   Tokyo, there will be two people. The organizers proceed from the principle of gender equality. We will determine the candidates on on-the-spot, when we know exactly which of athletes is in the Olympic Village and will be able to take part in the ceremony».


Pozdnyakov stressed that at the moment the issue of athletes' health is a priority. “Now it is important to strengthen control over the health of athletes, minimize their participation in mass events, strictly observe the anti-virus protocol and the measures contained in the recommendations of the International Olympic Committee and the Organizing Committee of the Games. Especially now that Beijing will have much stricter anti-virus protocols than the Tokyo Olympics,” added the head of the ROC.


The Olympic Games in Beijing will be held from 4 to 20 February.
