Luxury of freedom


Three Candidates For Slovenian Flag Carrier

Sixteen days separates us from the solemn opening of the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang. Sixteen days since the start of one of the biggest global event in 2018. All bearers of national flags, from home and abroad, are extremely proud of the honor shown, as this task is entrusted to only a few of them. For the first time, sports enthusiasts will be chosen by the Slovenian team.

The Olympic Committee of Slovenia and Val 202 had a new way of interacting with the sports public before the forthcoming games. For one of the most prestigious tasks in the games - carrying the Slovenian flag - the web designers will be appointed by the web users of the social networking site Facebook by voting during a FB Live broadcast on January 29, 2018 between 17:00 and 18:00.

Candidates for the Slovenian flag carrier are: Biathlete JAKOV FAK, ski runner VESNA FABJAN and hockey player MITJA ROBAR. They will be selected them on the FB profile Val 202, which will carry out a one-hour online talk show with all three, with its moderators and production team, during which the viewers will be able to choose the most suitable athlete for the honorable task with clicks. Such a way of choosing is definitely something new on a global scale, since we haven’t seen anything like this before.

The action can be followed on Facebook and the website of Val 202, other web profiles of RTV Slovenia and of course on the digital channels of the Olympic Committee of Slovenia, Facebook and the website.
