Both won gold medals in Rio in 2016.

Olympic champions Hannah Mills and Mohamed Sbihi have been named as チームGB’s first joint flag bearers for Friday’s opening ceremony of the 東京 オリンピック競技.

The pair, who will share the honour following a directive by the International Olympic Committee 3月, were chosen by a Team GB panel having been nominated by their respective sports.

Mills, 33, won sailing gold in 2016 女性の 470 class alongside Saskia Clark and will defend the title in Tokyo with a new team-mate, Eilidh McIntyre.

Sbihi, who is the fourth rower to be afforded the privilege, won gold in the men’s coxless fours in Rio and will compete in the men’s eight in the Japanese capital.

Mills said: “To be asked to carry the flag for Team GB at the Opening Ceremony of the Olympic Games is not a sentence I ever thought I’d say.

“When (Chef de Mission) Mark (イングランド) told me I had been chosen, it was completely overwhelming and when I had a moment to think about what it meant I got pretty emotional.

“It is the greatest honour in my career and I hope more than ever before that this Games can lift our country and deliver some incredible sporting moments to inspire the nation.”

Mills and Sbihi follow in the footsteps of Sir アンディマリー who carried the flag at the opening ceremony of the Rio Olympics in 2016.

Sbihi, who is competing in his third Games, 前記: “It is such an honour to be invited to be the flagbearer for Team GB.

“It is an iconic moment within the Olympic Movement – people remember those images. I certainly remember the images of Andy from Rio and even before I was a rower I remember seeing Sir Matt and Sir Steve, so it is something I am incredibly proud of.”
