As previously reported, the National Olympic Committee of Uzbekistan has replaced Uzbekistan's flag bearers at the opening ceremony of the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympic Games.
At today's ceremony, the flag of our country will be hoisted not by Oksana Chusovitina and Bobousmon Boturov, but Bahodir Jalolov and Nigora Tursunkulova will be the flag bearers. It is noteworthy that Bahodir Jalolov thus became the first athlete in the history of Uzbek sports to be the flag bearer for the second time after the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
The Olympics Games will see the participation of around 11,000 athletes from 205 countries. They will be competing for 339 gold medals across 33 sports. The Tokyo Olympics 2020 will see India's largest contingent to feature at the mega sporting event ever.
