Congratulations to Francesca Jones who will be representing Wales in Rhythmic Gymnastics at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow who has been named as the Flag Bearer for the country at the Opening Ceremony. Jones who is set to retire after Glasgow and is readying to compete in her third Commonwealth Games was shocked by the announcement.

Team Wales Chef de Mission Brian Davies said: “We are delighted to announce Frankie Jones as our Team Wales flag bearer for the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
“Frankie is a perfect choice having won a silver medal in Delhi, competed at the London 2012 Olympic Games and now aiming for another medal in Glasgow.
“This will be Frankie’s third, and final, Commonwealth Games which is a huge achievement in a sport dominated by young talent.
“There is no doubt the whole sport in Wales has grown off the back of her personal success and without her we would not have had such a thriving gymnastics team here in Glasgow.
Earlier this month, Singapore announced at a Flag Presentation Ceremony that Heem Wei Lim is set to carry her nation's flag at the Opening Ceremony. An image from the Presentation and a corresponding article can be seen at: http://www.redsports.sg/2014/07/02/teamsg-flag-presentation/
