        For interest, here are the athletics Olympians to carry the USA flag at the Opening Ceremony:

        1908 Ralph Rose
        1912 George Bonhag
        1920 Pat McDonald
        1924 Pat McDonald
        1928 Bud Houser
        1932 Morgan Taylor
        1960 Rafer Johnson
        1964 Parry O'Brien
        1972 Olga Fikotov√°-Connolly
        1984 Ed Burke
        1988 Evelyn Ashford
        2008 Lopez Lomong
        Perhaps surprisingly the UK has only had 4 and the last one was Lynn Davies in 1968!

        However the British T&F athletes are often in a holding camp away from the host city itself at the time of the Opening Ceremony. I think Daley Thompson turned it down in 1984.
