Manu to be standard bearer in Beijing Games

 

<!-- TOKEN_1214883916406_TOKEN -->

Manu Ginóbili was selected by the Argentine Olympic Committee to hoist the nation's flag in the opening ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

The result of the 19-member voting panel was:
Emanuel Ginobili (basketball) - 8
Santiago Fernandez (rowing) - 3
Juan Curuchet (cycling) - 2
Luciana Aymar (hockey) - 1
David Nalbandian (tennis) - 1
4 abstentations

What I don't know, however, is what will happen if Manu can't play in the Beijing Games after all. Honestly, I want to see him there because to be in the position of defending an Olympic Gold is very rare. I hope he makes the right decision after he gets his MRI results in July.
