Chris Hoy to carry UK flag at London Games opening ceremonyLondon: Four-time Olympic champion Sir Chris Hoy has been selected to carry the British flag at the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games.

According to reports, it is understood that Hoy won the vote of British athletes and officials, though the result will not be made official until the British Olympic Association (BOA) announces it.


BOA Spokesman Darryl Seibel refused to confirm the selection, but said: “We are planning an official announcement for tomorrow.”

Hoy is also recognized as a fine ambassador for British sport, having been the enduring face of cycling’s high profile over the past decade.

Hoy, 36, will lead out a dramatically depleted home team, although Britain’s 542-athlete delegation is the largest at the Games, only half that number are expected to march, due to their sporting priorities over the coming days.
