Team GB’s flag carriers for Tokyo 2020 Olympics opening ceremony unveiled
The Mirror says: Tokyo 2020 organisers had asked for a man and woman from each team for the ceremony which will take place tomorrow in the Japanese capital city.
Team GB has announced a ‘Little and Large’ duo as our flag bearers for the Tokyo opening ceremony tomorrow.
Sailor Hannah Mills, who is 5ft 2in tall, received the honour alongside rower Moe Sbihi – a giant at 6ft 8in.
She said it was an ’emotional’ moment when she was told that she had been chosen for the role.
The pair were first nominated by their teammates before British Olympic Association officials made the final decision.
Tokyo 2020 organisers had asked for a man and woman from each team for the ceremony.
It is likely to be a much smaller affair than usual due to the fear of Covid infection among the athletes taking part.
