Egyptian wrestler Karam Gaber will hold Egypt's flag in the opening ceremony of the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing.

Gaber will lead the way for more than 100 Egyptian athletes at the Beijing National Stadium on Friday August 8th.

"Gaber was honored with the task after his achievement in Athens 2004, which is Egypt's best result in more than 50 years," head of Egyptian delegation Mohamed Shaheen said.

The 29-year-old wrestler clinched gold in Athens after a superb victory in the Greco-Roman finals.
