    Australia's flagbearer will be announced live on television tomorrow night. I doubt it will be one of our skaters, but I do reckon Dani and Greg would be a rockin' choice!

    It was known way back in November that Montana's Jason Lamy Chappuis would be the flagbearer for France.

    I should add, after dominating Nordic Combined for the past few years, Jason is having a very disappointing 2013/14 season. He is currently in 4th position in the World Cup standings, around 400 points behind the leader Eric Frenzel.

    Oh, and his cousin, Ronan Lamy Chappuis, is competing for France in the specialised Ski Jumping.

    Oops. Sorry, I never saw your post until after I posted my reply about Jason.

    I just clicked on the link and saw that Tong Jian was announced as flagbearer for China today.

    Great to see that two of my favourite athletes, Simon Ammann of Switzerland and Tina Weirather of Liechtenstein, are also being flagbearers.
