Baseball player Eduardo Alvarez and basketball player Sue Bird will be the flag bearers of the US national team at the Olympic Games in Tokyo, according to the microblog of the American team on Twitter.

The opening of the 2020 Games will be held at the National Olympic Stadium in Tokyo on Friday. The Olympic Games in Tokyo were postponed for a year due to the coronavirus and will be held from July 23 to August 8, 2021. It should become the largest in terms of the number of sports – 33. About 19 thousand athletes are planned to participate.
