I can honestly say no one expected this. Stan must be grateful he has a friend called Roger Federer

Is no one else in Switzerland worthy of the honor? Cancellara isn't running?

Great honor, he deserves it as a current gold medal holder.

Cancellara has the road race on the next day in the morning so maybe that was a factor. I know Roger did say he'd love to see Stan with the flag.

When you say was no one running, how many other athletes have won gold for Switzerland at the Olympics?

The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.

It was an honest question, I didn't know anyone else besides Federinka & Cancellara

Yes and it seems like Roger wanted Stan to carry the flag

I wish it was Federer but I suppose he declined.
Though very kind of him to pass it on to Waw.

Yes, Roger was the first choice but he said that another athlete should be given the opportunity and that he would be happy if Stan got the chance.
