Written by RockSport on February 8, 2018
Defending skeleton champion Lizzy Yarnold will carry the Great Britain flag at the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.
The 29-year-old was selected by her GB team-mates for the honour when the 23rd Games open in South Korea on Friday.
She said: “It’s really exciting and the opening ceremony is the start of something that I know from Sochi will be the biggest two weeks of my life.”
Yarnold is aiming to become the first Briton to defend a Winter Olympic title when she competes at Alpensia Sliding Centre on 16 and 17 February.
