Another cool Michigan tie to these Olympics. Michigan alum Nick Willis is carrying the flag for the New Zealand delegation tonight. He runs next friday in the 1500m.
OT: New Zealand olympic flag bearer - Michigan grad
guide to Michigan olympians over at the Bently site:
He still trains/trained in Ann Arbor, he goes to my church here in AA and seems like a pretty cool dude. (insert "cool story bro" here)
I know Nick pretty well and he is a very cool dude. He is very genuine and extremely funny. There couldn't be a better ambassador for New Zealand or for Michigan at these olympics
Does anyone have any live streams for the opening ceremony?
They're coverring over 5000 hours live - but not the opening ceremony - can't watch it on nbc until tonight...
Should be interesting to see and hear the receptions for the flag bearers from Jamaica (Usain Bolt), Poland (Agnieszka Radwanska), Russia (Maria Sharapova) and Serbia (Novak Djokovic)
