That would be epic! I do not know what other Russian athletes may do it this year, someone who knows better could tell us if this is something possible?
I'm from the same town of Antonio Rossi, the sprint canoer, who carried the flag for Italy in 2008 at Beijing and I remember how beautiful it was to see him at the opening ceremony.
