:SLO will choose flagbearer among three nominees: Jakov Fak (biathlon), Vesna Fabjan (cross country skiing) and Mitja Robar (ice hockey). It will be publicly voted during team presentation next week. I am hoping for Fak.

There are only two candidates left for carrying :SLO flag.

Jakov Fak has resigned because of negativity of some ("so called") people. As you probably know, Fak is Croatian and was flagbearer for his home land at 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, where he won bronze in sprint (first ever Croatian biathlon medal), ahead of Klemen Bauer, who finished 4th.

It looks our society has still some issues, therefore Fak decided to pull out of voting procedure, only two remaining candidates are now Vesna Fabjan and Mitja Robar, online voting is about to happen on Monday.

 

Here is official link.

Anything but Pechstein would be good :d 

 

Nope, East German carrying the flag in 2018 would be something else. :cheer:

I'm fairly sure nearly every East German athlete would be less of a shady figure than Pechstein, so they can do that in 2020 with a non-Pechstein :p
