Bermuda Olympic Sailor Ceci Wollmann represented Bermuda and the entire Americas Region earlier today as the Olympic Torch passes through the Village.
Wollmann dressed in the Olympic Torch Bearer uniform wore a huge smile as she carried the Torch that will light up the games come tomorrow night.
According to the Publication List the Rio 2016 Olympics Opening Ceremony Parade Order of nations will be slightly different than previous years.
English-speaking world is that the opening ceremony of the 2016 Rio Olympics will feature the countries taking the field in alphabetical order, but by the Portuguese spelling of the nations. As such some countries, like the United States, which generally enters toward the end of the parade, will find themselves entering early on during the event with the ‘E’s under Estates Unidos. This has even led to the US television networks asking that this be changed, as they fear American TV audiences will quickly turn the channel after they see the American team enter the stadium. Something similar happened in Beijing where the teams entered by ‘stroke’ order of the Chinese alphabet.
In case you are wondering, the Bermuda team will be wearing the famous red BERMUDA SHORTS, along with navy blue blazers and the men sporting their navy blue BERMUDA SOCKS.
