PLAYERS: Chris Hoy
Four-time Olympic champion Chris Hoy will be Britain's flag bearer at the opening ceremony for the London Games. The cyclist, who won the vote of the 542-strong British team, also carried the Union Jack in the closing ceremony in Beijing four years ago. The honor comes after the 36-year-old Hoy was informed by British Cycling that he wouldn't be able defend all three of his track titles from 2008 at the London Olympics. While he has a chance to again win gold medals in the keirin and team sprint, he will not be able to defend his individual sprint title.
