The International Olympic Committee has actively encouraged all delegations to select two flag-bearers at the opening ceremony, including one woman, as women's participation in the Tokyo Games will reach 48.8 percent, making it the most gender-balanced Olympics in the history of the event.

Team China will be led by two flag-bearers - women's volleyball star Zhu Ting and reigning men's taekwondo champion Zhao Shuai at the ceremony.
