Poor Romania. I am assuming they don't have any Olympic medalist.

That doesn't mean anything. Olympic flag bearer should be someone who has won Olympic gold.

Such a stupid and insulting comment.

What about countries that don't have gold medalists or any medalists at all? What about countries that for the first time ever qualified? They maybe don't deserve to compete?
Let's make the Olympics only for 3 countries that take home the three medals and be done with it.

Olimpics is about bringing the world together, in a friendly competition, where patriotism is the fire that enhances everything, because it's something that makes everyone feel they have a part in it, and the athletes feel this as more than an selfish accomplishment. They are the ambassadors of their country.

Right now for Romania, Simona is the greatest ambassador, so she is well within her right to carry it's flag.

Yeah, definitely you are entitled to your opinion even if it's moronic and ignorant.

There have been plenty of flag bearers that haven't won gold medals. Doesn't mean they're less deserving.

Romanian Horia Tecău was the flag bearer at the 2012 games with no gold medals. Sharapova was the Russian flag holder at the 2012 games, with no gold medal. Max Miryni was the flag bearer for Belarus with no gold medal in 2012. Aga was the Polish flag bearer with no gold medal. Woz was the flag bearer for Denmark in 2016 with no gold medal.

Simona has represented Romania with great pride both on and off the court. She's more than deserving of this honor.

Re: Simona Halep , Romanian flag bearer for Tokyo 2020

What's up with all the hate in this thread?

It's not like smaller countries have that much choices to pick from. We can hardly win a medal, let alone a gold medal.
I think its an excellent choice for Romania.
