As early as a few months ago, the rumor that Zhu Ting was a standard bearer came out.

In terms of personal influence, project influence and international influence, “international Zhu”, as the “MVP harvester” of women’s volleyball team, naturally does not need to count in detail. Now Zhu Ting is not only the pride of Chinese women’s volleyball team, but also the pride of Chinese sports. To become the first female flag bearer of the Chinese Olympic delegation at the summer Olympic Games, Zhu Ting will be the leader of the Chinese Olympic delegation this time, leading the Chinese delegation to the grand entrance at the opening ceremony.

The flag bearer of China’s Olympic delegation has always been concerned. Before the Rio Olympics, men’s basketball players were the main players. The main reason is that the men’s basketball players are tall and powerful and have temperament. Like Yao Ming and Liu Yudong, they even became flag bearers twice. However, from the beginning of the Rio Olympic Games, flag bearers are not only limited to basketball players, this year’s Chinese men’s basketball team did not enter the Olympic Games, it is even more impossible.

It’s the first time in the history of Chinese Olympic Games that men and women match the standard bearer. Why is she and them?

In the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, the flag bearer of the Chinese delegation is Lei Sheng, a fencer, breaking the convention that the flag bearer has always been a men’s basketball player

In recent years, volleyball players with the same height have become the hot spots of flag bearers all over the world. According to statistics, up to now, at least seven volleyball players will be the flag bearers of the Tokyo Olympic Games. Besides Zhu Ting, her old opponent Jin ruanjing (South Korea) will also be the flag bearers of the opening ceremony

Flag bearer “veteran”

Who is Zhao Shuai? Compared with Zhu Ting, Zhao Shuai’s name is a little strange to many people. However, it is not the first time for Zhao Shuai to be a flag bearer. Three years ago, at the Asian Games in Jakarta, Zhao Shuai was a flag bearer and led the Chinese delegation to enter the stadium.
