German Rio flagbearer: four Olympic champions or Boll

Berlin (dpa) - Olympic champions Ingrid Klimke, Lena Schoenborn, Kristina Vogel and Moritz Fuerste or Timo Boll will be Germany‘s flag bearer at the opening ceremony of the Rio de Janeiro Games, the German Olympic Sports Confederation (DOSB) said on Saturday.

The flagbearer will for the first time be chosen via a vote among Olympic team athletes and votes among fans via the DOSB, state networks ARD and ZDF, and the Bild paper.

The vote is open until August 2 and the winner will be announced on the eve of the August 5 ceremony.

Klimke is a three-day event rider, Schoenborn a modern pentathlete, Vogel a track cyclist and Fuerste a field hockey player. While they have all won gold medals at past Games, the table tennis player Boll has a silver and a bronze.

"Oh my god!! Me flagbearer??? I am so proud just to make the top five," the elated Vogel said on Twitter.

Previous flagbearers were picked by the DOSB which this time around only selected the shortlist of five. Field hockey player Natascha Keller was Germany‘s flagbearer 2012 in London, and basketball star Dirk Nowitzki 2008 in Beijing.
