After being named as standard bearer of the Moldovan delegation to opening ceremony of Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, the fighter Nicolae Ceban declares that he is honored to do it again.
Moldova will be represented at the Olympic Games 2016 by 21 sportsmen. Nicolae Ceban is 30 years old and is the person with the biggest experience in the delegation. He participates to the Olympic Games for the third time. Ceban was the standard bearer of Moldovan delegation at the Olympic Games 2008, which took place in Beijing.
At the previous summer Olympic Games, the standard bearer of Moldova was named the archer Dan Olaru. It happened after the weightlifter Cristina Iovu refused to participate to the opening ceremony of Olympics in London.
