Sushil Kumar to be India's flagbearer at London Games

London Olympics
New Delhi, Jul 15: Champion wrestler Sushil Kumar will be the country's flag bearer at the opening ceremony of the London Games on Jul 27, the Indian Olympic Association said today.

Abhinav Bindra who won a gold medal in shooting at the Beijing Olympics was reportedly considered by the IOA for the honour. However, the fact that the 10m air rifle event is scheduled for July 30 meant that he was ruled out.

Boxer Vijender Singh too was not considered because of a similar problem, sources said.
