Jian Fang Lay for flag bearer
Please make Jian Fang Lay a closing ceremony flag bearer with Ariarne Titmus. She has represented Australia at 6 Olympics (Gazey only had 5, and didn’t give birth to any children). She represents Australia’s multicultural diversity and celebrates the Australian spirit of giving it a go.
Why is this important?
Ariarne’s achievements have been amazing. What is also amazing is the country that supports a 48 year old immigrant and mother to represent her country, and that she has done well. Having Jian Fang Lay be a flag bearer is representation of who we are… yes, great swimmers, but also a diverse country of all walks.
