Stockholm (dpa) - Seasoned Swedish swimmer Therese Alshammar is to carry the Swedish flag at the opening ceremony of the Rio Games, the Swedish Olympic Committee said Thursday.

The Rio Games are Alshammar‘s sixth Olympic competition, a record for a female swimmer.

The 38-year-old, who made her Olympic debut in 1996 at the Atlanta Games, has three Olympic medals from the 2000 Sydney Games where she collected silver medals in the 50m and 100m freestyle events and a bronze with the Swedish relay team.

Alshammar was not present at Thursday‘s announcement in Rio de Janeiro as she was training in another part of the city, Swedish Radio sports reported.

During her stellar career, she has also won scores of world and European medals.

Also in speculation for the honour were Henrik Stenson, who recently became the first Swedish male golfer to win a major when he lifted the British Open title, sailor Max Salminen and dressage competitor Tinne Vilhelmson-Silfven.
