Manu Ginobili to Carry Flag for Argentina at Olympics


 The Spurs’ Manu Ginobili has been elected the flagbearer for Argentina at the opening ceremonies at the Olympics next month in Beijing.

The country’s 19-member Olympic Committee chose Ginobili, whose status for playing in the Games is still in doubt, over four other athletes. The country’s only gold medal at the 2004 Olympics came in men’s basketball, led by Ginobili.
