Madelyn Moore was honored to be Bermuda's Flag Bearer for the Opening Ceremony of the Youth Olympic Games in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
The 3rd Summer Youth Olympic Games Buenos Aires 2018 got off to a great start! For the first time in the history of the modern Olympic Games, the Opening Ceremony was held in the street, with the celebration open to all - and about 200.000 people showed up for the party.
The young Bermuda swimmer proudly led her teammates through the streets of Argentina.
Addressing the young athletes in his speech, IOC President Thomas Bach said: “To get here, each of you trained and competed hard. You gave your best in the sport you love so much. This is why you deserve to be here, at your Games. Every athlete is different. We all come from different parts of the world and have different cultures. But we are all united by the Olympic values of excellence, friendship and respect. Guided by these Olympic values, each one of you makes a difference in sport and in life. This experience will stay with you for all your life. We are all assembled here to celebrate you, as the real game-changers.”
