In a ceremony at the headquarters of the Spanish Olympics committee today, Rafa was presented with the Spanish flag he will carry into the 2012 Olympics opening ceremony today. The Spanish station rtve has posted a video of the complete ceremony.

Here’s a bit of an interview/presser - El título olímpico es el más difícil:

And a short report on the ceremony from rtve.

Rafa posted a photo and talked about the honor on Facebook.

Ya tengo en mis manos la bandera que portare en Londres, acompañado por otros deportistas que la llevaron Jaime Berenguer, Enrique Rodríguez, Herminio Mernéndez y Alejandro Abascal. Gracias a Alejandro Blanco y José Ignacio Wert por incluirme entre los elegidos :)
