ELIZABETH GOLDING NAMED AS TEAM IRELAND FLAGBEARER FOR THE CLOSING CEREMONY OF THE EYOF

Elizabeth Golding has been named as the Team Ireland flagbearer for the Closing Ceremony of the European Youth Olympic Festival in Vuokatti, Finland. The Dubai based athlete, with Dublin and Wicklow roots was the first ever figure skater to compete for Team Ireland in an Olympic event.

Speaking on her selection Golding said,

“It was an honour to carry the flag for my country, and it was very exciting to walk into the arena and represent Ireland and skating.”

Team Ireland Chef de Mission for the event Linda O’Reilly was pleased with the performances of the athletes throughout this important development stage for young athletes,
