    Skaters who will be flag bearer?

    I only know about Deividas Stagniūnas who will be flag bearer of Lithuania. But I think I already read about others skaters...

    Fernandez will get the Spanish flag, and Elene Gedevanishvili will finally get to carry the Georgian flag.

    Except that Georgia is threatening to withdraw its team because Russia recognizes two breakaway Georgian republics. I hope that doesn't happen! After all this time, for Gedevanishvili to get to skate practically on home turf--I hope she doesn't lose that chance.

    Should be
    Michael Christian Martinez from the Philippines
    He is made history by qualifying the Philippines for the Winter Olympic game for the first time in 20 years.

    Javi did a great job!

    Not too sure about the headgear the Spanish team was wearing, though...

    But, unfortunately, Elene didn't get to carry the flag. It was some other girl (according to the list on Wikipedia, her name is Nino Tsiklauri, and she's an Alpine Skiier)

    What a shame for Elene! After all she did to put Georgia on the map...

    I was surprised that Elene wasn't even in the parade!

    Was she too disappointed at not carrying the flag to face the ceremony?

    Or, is this the start of some sort of conspiracy theory...?

    Nah, I would say she's just too busy training! Making sure she puts in a good performance come the Individual competitions.

    Yes, Fernandez and Tong were charming, proud flag bearers and Elene didn't look like Elene
