Sochi 2014 Olympic Update (Day 14)

Countries continue to race to the end of these Olympics but the committees of many countries have a big decision to make before it is all over. Countries must decide one of the biggest honours in the Olympics as the closing ceremony flag bearer is still to be decided. Every Olympics each country decides which athlete will carry the flag in to the arena during the opening and closing ceremonies. Generally the opening ceremony flag bearer is an athlete that has put some time into their countries efforts. These are athletes that have been in the Olympics before and have done well for their country.

It is not always the most exciting sporting event for some people because it is not a big part of sports culture in a lot of ways. There is also the issue that the Olympics have generally kept their old school mentality about a lot of things. They seem to have an attitude about other sports that are not in the Olympics as less than the Olympic sports.
