Jade Etherington has spoken of her pride in being selected to carry the GB flat at tonight's closing ceremony,
I feel tremendously privileged to be selected to carry our flag in front of an international crowd and specifically the GB audience back home. We've raised the flag four times this week already so this time it will be nice to carry it. Being visually impaired, I'll be able to see this one. As we missed the opening ceremony, we are really excited to both be getting to go to the closing ceremony. And for a change I'll be the one guiding Caroline around, as well as the whole team.
A senior management team of ParalympicsGB staff, headed by chef de missionPenny Briscoe, chose Etherington as flag bearer.
Jade (supported by Caroline) has delivered consistent medal-winning performances in each of the races she has competed in, making her Britain's most celebrated Winter Paralympian.
