Roger Federer will carry Swiss flag

(official news from the Swiss Olympic Association)

Swiss tennis player Roger Federer will carry the flag with the opening celebration on 13 August 2004 in the olympia stadium of Athens. The current number 1 of the tennis world rank list assured to take over this honorable office.

Roger Federer one inquired by the guidance team for this task. With joy the guidance team took Federers knowledge today from the decision that it will march with joy in the point of the Swiss Olympic team into the Oaka stadium of Athens.

Federers predecessors in the task as color bearers were Thomas's fresh farmhand (MTB, 2000 Sydney) and Stefan Schaerer (hand ball, 1996 Atlanta).


So happy for Rogi. Hopefully he won't embarrass himself out there. ;) :woohoo:
