Rodrigo Pessoa and HH Rebozo - here seen at the WEG in 2010. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.Rodrigo Pessoa has been chosen to be the Brazilian flag bearer at the opening ceremony in London on July 27th. It is a big honor to be chosen to do this job for your country, which also makes it an honor for the equestrian sports.

Pessoa took home the individual gold medal during the Olympics in Athens in 2004, and he also has two Olympic team-bronze medals from Sidney in 2000 and Atlanta in 1996. For the 2012 Olympics Pessoa is bringing the stallion HH Rebozo on which Pessoa came fourth during the World Equestrian Games in Kentucky in 2010.
