SAO PAULO, July 7: Olympic equestrian champion Rodrigo Pessoa will be Brazil’s flag-bearer at the opening ceremony for the London Games.

Pessoa will be participating in his sixth Olympics and trying to win his fourth medal. He won individual gold in Athens in 2004 and bronzes in the team event in Sydney in 2000 and Atlanta in 1996.

The 39-year-old Pessoa said he was “very moved” and “honoured” when he received the news, calling it a “very special moment” in his career.—AP
