UNF's Zepherinus Joseph will be carrying the flag for his native St. Lucia Friday night on NBC at 8pm. In an email today Zeph informed flrunners.com that not only will he be carrying the flag representing his home country, but thanks to the Greek alphabet St. Lucia will be the first country to enter the stadium. So he should be easy to spot!
UNF Coach Mark Vanalstyne commented that Joseph "is very proud and happy to represent St. Lucia, UNF, and the entire Jacksonville community at the (Olympic) Games."
Zeph will compete on the final day of the Olympics in the marathon.
