Zagunis to Be Flag Bearer at Opening Ceremonies E-mail

Congratulations to our very own two-time Olympic fencing champion Mariel Zagunis, who was chosen to carry the U.S. flag in the opening ceremony of the London Games. The U.S. Olympic Committee says Zagunis, a Beaverton native, won a vote of the 529-strong team ahead of Friday's ceremony. Zagunis says she is "extremely humbled by this incredible privilege." Mariel was the first American to win a fencing gold in 100 years at the 2004 Athens Games, and she will be going for her third consecutive women's saber gold in London.
