Will Maria Sharapova Carry Flag For Russia At 2012 London Olympics?

There is controversy brewing over who will get the honor of carrying the Russian flag during the Opening Ceremony at the 2012 London Olympics. Initially, it was reported that Maria Sharapova would receive the honor but now there seems to be a bit of a power struggle going on. Sharmil Tarpischev, the Russian tennis chief, announced Masha would get the privilege. He was then contradicted by Russian Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko who said Masha was a contender but no decision had been made. He went on to say a Russian wrestler might be chosen instead. I can only say this: CHOOSE MARIA SHARAPOVA!
