Good point Olimpo. And like Kristol, Nico carried the flag in Sydney
in 2000 but he is still in the voting.

Yeah I know but due to what happened in Athens I can understand that he was included in the voting, but to be honest I don’t know why the voting was done at all since IMHO it’s really Fernando’s turn this year.

And fortunately he is still leading with quite a gap in the overall result. I found this article in La Tercera and this answered my question about the results page of canal 13 which definitely only shows the actual voting of the day/moment (like ChinoRios4Ever said before) and not the total result.

Fernando is practically official the new flag bearer of Chile


Chilenos eligieron a González como el abanderado para Beijing


Hasta esta tarde el tenista acumula el 55% de las preferencias en una votación pública que finaliza mañana jueves, a las 11:00 horas.

Miércoles 30 de Julio de 2008
17:35
El Mercurio Online
SANTIAGO.- Aunque aún no se ha confirmado oficialmente, todo indicaría que el tenista Fernando González será el abanderado de la delegación chilena en la ceremonia de apertura de los Juegos Olímpicos de Beijing, el próximo 8 de agosto.

Según la encuesta inédita por internet que elaboró el Comité Olímpico y un canal de televisión, la primera raqueta de Chile logró la mayor adhesión de los chilenos.

Hasta las 17 horas de este miércoles el tenista de La Reina llevaba un 55,54% de las preferencias del público. Mientras que su más cercana “contrincante”, la balista Natalia Duco contaba con el 34,11% de los votos.

En el tercer lugar aparecía la remera Soraya Jadue con 4,11% de la votación. Muy lejos de las preferencias está el actual campeón olímpico y quien llevó la bandera en Sydney 2000, Nicolas Massú, con 2,84%.

Según se informó mañana jueves, a las 11:00 horas, un programa matinal de una canal de televisión oficializará la designación de González como el nuevo "abanderado del pueblo".

El abanderado chileno ya se encuentra en Beijing

Fernando González arribó a la capital china, donde el próximo jueves recibirá el estandarte nacional que portará en la ceremonia inaugural de los Juegos Olímpicos.




El abanderado chileno Fernando González arribo cerca de las 15.00 horas de China (3.00 de la madrugada de Chile) a Beijing, donde intentará defender la medalla de oro en dobles y el bronce en singles en la competencia de tenis en los Juegos Olímpicos.

Tras finalizar su participación en el Masters Series de Cincinnati, donde perdió en primera ronda ante el checo Tomas Berdych, la primera raqueta nacional permaneció en Estados Unidos entrenándose, hasta que ayer domingo emprendió viaje a Asia.

Ya instalado en la Villa Olímpica, el "Bombardero de La Reina" descansará para sacarse el largo viaje, aunque ya mañana martes debería comenzar a adaptarse a la pista dura que albergará la especialidad, en el Centro de Tenis, en el Parque Olímpico.

El próximo jueves, en tanto, González recibirá oficialmente el estandarte nacional con el que encabezará la delegación en la ceremonia de apertura, en la bienvenida oficial que ofrecerá la embajada chilena en Beijing (7.00 horas de Chile).

Fernando González, antes de volar a los Juegos Olímpicos:
"Tengo la ilusión de subir al podio"
Con sesiones de cuatro horas diarias, y bajo 35 grados de calor, "Mano de Piedra" espera mejorar su irregular presente y así defender las medallas obtenidas en Atenas 2004.


Las canchas de entrenamiento del Lindner Family Tennis Club están casi vacías. Pero eso no le importa a González. Para él, lo único que importa es corregir los errores de las últimas semanas y defender a Chile en los Juegos Olímpicos.

Por lo mismo, corre hasta la última pelota mientras practica, se enoja, e incluso rompe con furia una raqueta. No sólo la tira, sino que además la lanza al otro extremo de la cancha, la va a buscar, la toma y la machaca, hasta prácticamente desintegrarla. Pero no es problema, pues saca otra.

Todo esto, mientras Paul Capdeville y su entrenador, Larry Stefanki, observan junto a la cancha.

Tras el entrenamiento, González cede unos minutos a "El Mercurio". Y lo primero que exhibe es su alegría. "Estoy contento por ser el abanderado, ya que es el evento deportivo más importante del mundo, y que las personas de mi país me hayan elegido es muy muy bonito. Es un sueño", detalla.

-¿Usted seguía el recuento de votos?

"Claro, iba chequeando las votaciones, me metía al sitio a ver cómo iban. Y nada, igual estaba tranquilo, pero ahora estoy feliz, súper contento, porque estoy haciendo lo que siempre había querido hacer".

-Si por algún problema no pudiera llevarla, ¿quién le gustaría que fuera el reemplazante?

"Nadie, porque la quiero llevar yo. No me gusta pensar negativamente. Son los Juegos Olímpicos, es algo importante para mí, y la bandera la voy a llevar yo".

-¿Cómo se siente para defender la medalla?

"Con muchas ganas de competir con los mejores. Tengo la ilusión de subirme nuevamente al podio. Tengo las ganas, y eso es lo más importante. Aún debo mejorar algunas cosas, pero tengo todas las ganas, y creo poder lograrlo".

-Sinceramente, según lo que ha jugado en las últimas semanas, ¿podrá ganarle a Federer o a Nadal?

"Todos las campeonatos son diferentes. Hay muchos jugadores que no están pasando por su mejor nivel, es un momento extraño, es una oportunidad bien buena, así que creo que la competencia va a estar bien abierta".

-¿Con Nicolás Massú tiene algún plan en especial?

"Estamos acostumbrados a jugar juntos y en lugares distintos del mundo. Creo que lo importante es la adaptación, y las condiciones de Cincinnati son bien parecidas, hay harto calor y la pelota es bien rápida. Por eso voy a llegar varios días antes para acostumbrarme a cómo corre la pelota y así pillar bien los partidos".

-¿Le preocupa la contaminación de la ciudad?

"Un poco, pero sé que han tomado medidas. Yo estuve el año pasado allá jugando, y me fue re'bien. Es obvio que la contaminación no es buena para la salud, pero creo que las condiciones serán iguales para todos".

-¿Que les diría a los chilenos que ven en ti la única esperanza real de medalla?

"Que yo también creo, jajaja. Pero otros deportistas y yo tenemos posibilidades. Mira, en el alto rendimiento pasa cualquier cosa, hay que estar siempre listo. Lo importante es que nosotros como delegación estamos dispuestos a dejarlo todo, y yo lo voy a dar todo en Beijing. Trataré de dejar el nombre de Chile lo más alto posible".
