View Full Version : PAW Olympics - FLAGBEARERS per country!

The task of a “flagbearer”, will be to carry their country's flag into the Athens Olympics Stadium when the opening ceremony proceeds.

In WTAWorld this will involve posting a picture of your country's flag (if you don't know how to, just ask...) in the PAW - Olympics Thread (that will be posted in the Olympics forum soon) at the time of the opening ceremony or if you can't make it online then, a bit after...

There is only one flagbearer per country so for some countries who have their own country threads, I'll let you discuss before choosing one representative. Remember you must be committed to the PAW Olympics to be in contention.

For countries that don’t nominate a player, the highest ranked will be given this responsibility, I’ll pm all flagbearers on the eve of the opening ceremony to remind them :)

I'll bold the flagbearers as they come in...

Buitenzorg, you need to discuss this with other Australian players, it isn't a first in first serve basis, all Australian PAW players must come to a decision before selecting ONE flagbearer :wavey:

Spikey,
Just realised that I didn't commit to Olympics, instead in Cincinnati.

Is it still possible to change my commitment to Olympics now? This one is far more interesting (to represent country) ;)

I know it's short notice, but I'm forced to retire as flag bearer, due to unexpected personal circumstances (nothing serious, fortunately). I will still be able to play the tournament itself and carry the torch. Is it possible for CooCooCachoo to take over from me as flag bearer? I know he will like that.
