Flag bearer: LOEVBERG (NOR)

Quotes from Norway flag bearer Marte LOEVBERG before the Baku 2015 European Games Closing Ceremony at the Olympic Stadium on Sunday.


On being a flag bearer:

"It's quite a big thing for me. It's a bit scary actually because I'm only 16 years old."

"When I look around, most of the flag bearers are five or ten years older than me, but this is going to be an experience for life and it's going to be emotional to finish the European Games in this way."

"It's a perfect way to finish a very good competition for me personally because I beat the Norwegian junior record in the 50-metre freestyle, and that was unexpected."
