Aerial Skiing silver medallist David Morris has been named Australian Flagbearer for the Sochi 2014 Closing Ceremony, reports Taya Conomos on the Australian Olympic Team website, 22 February 2014.

Morris, Australia’s one and only male aerials medallist, was offered the position by Chef de Mission Ian Chesterman yesterday and had to keep it a secret until it was revealed this morning in Sochi.

It’s a privilege, I’ve always dreamed of this. It’s awesome,” said Morris, who spoke to media with the Australian flag draped around him.

To be selected to represent the Team and what we stand for is just amazing.”

The 29-year-old dual Olympian is one of the most charismatic members of the Team. Since leaping to an inspired silver medal, Morris has been out supporting his teammates every day sporting an Australian flag on his back- you could say he’s been practicing.

I watched Chumpy in the Opening Ceremony- he did a very good job," he said adding ''maybe I'll dance.''
