The 37-year-old Nordic combined skier will lead the largest delegation of American athletes in any Winter Olympics on Friday.

"Being nominated to carry the flag at the opening ceremony is one of the greatest honours that has ever been bestowed upon me," the Metro West Daily News quotes him as saying.
