Rio gold medalists named flag-bearers for China

WOMEN’S volleyball team skipper Zhu Ting and taekwondo athlete Zhao Shuai have been named as the Chinese delegation’s flag-bearers at the opening ceremony of the Tokyo Olympic Games, the Chinese Olympic Committee announced on Saturday.

In a statement posted on its social media account, the COC said that flag-bearers of the Chinese delegation at the Olympics’ opening ceremony have always attracted major attention and been a hot topic of discussion.

Zhu helped team China to win the Olympic gold medal in volleyball in Rio de Janeiro five years ago, while Zhao made history by winning China’s first Olympic gold in men’s taekwondo when he triumphed in the 58kg category, also at Rio.
