Asian Games: Rani Rampal to be India’s flag-bearer at closing ceremony


Indian women’s hockey team captain Rani Rampal has been selected as India’s flag-bearer for the closing ceremony of the 18th Asian Games.

“Rani will be the flag-bearer for tomorrow’s ceremony,” Indian Olympic Association (IOA) President Narinder Batra said.

Hockey India’s official Twitter handle congratulated Rampal in its tweet. “Hockey India congratulates @imranirampal, the Captain of the Indian Women’s Hockey Team, who will be holding up the tricolour for the Indian contingent during the closing ceremony of the @asiangames2018 in Jakarta & Palembang on 2nd September.”

Rampal led India to win the silver medal earlier on Friday. Indian women’s hockey team made their first final in 20 years but ended up losing to Japan 1-2.

Many of India’s athletes have returned back home after the competition, the choice of the flag-bearer depends on the availability of the athletes.

Javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra, who went on to win the gold medal, was India’s flag-bearer at the opening ceremony.
