Ethiopia - Miruts Yifter the flag bearer in Parade of Nations at Beijing Olympics
Ethiopia's Miruts Yifter, winner of two gold medals at the 1980 Summer Olympics, was honored as the flag bearer for team Ethiopia at the Parade of Nations of the 2008 Summer Olympics Opening Ceremony in Beijing.
The biggest disappointment was the flag itself, widely known as Woyane Flag. This is a flag not accepted by the vast majority of Ethiopians and with out a doubt, a flag that will last only as long as the current regime.
China has put a spectacular ceremony, here is how NBC put it, "Opening ceremony that surpassed all superlatives".
