This is a first for me. :AND announced they will have no flag bearer, but a volunteer carrying the flag.

unfortunately it seems our NOC enjoys to follow the IOC's "advise" which means 67% of our small 3-man delegation will carry the flag ! :d

 

it will be Sattar Seyd (CC skiing) and Atefeh Ahmadi (Alpine)

 

4 years ago our flagbearer crying during the parade of the nations even made it to the IOC's Olympic highlight. but now with this "advise" it's not really a special moment for anybody.

Talk that NZ won't have a flag bearer at all but an official doing it and that no athletes will be present at the ceremony. Surely that's not the case, but if so NZ's paranoia with Covid from Stalinda Ardern has filtered through to the NZOC.

Might be an unfortunate but wise and necessary decision. Paranoia or not and agreeing with restrictions or not, the moment one positive test puts you out of the Olympics, you simply need to be extremely careful, completely independent from what one's own opinion about the rules is.
