Former Razorback golfer Gaby Lopez carried the Mexican flag at the Tokyo 2020 Opening Ceremony.

Lopez was a standout on Arkansas’ golf team. She’s a two-time NC-double-A First Team All-American. And now, she can add Olympian to her resume.

“It has been the best experience God, life, golf, has given me,” Lopez said. “Today, I feel more proud to be Mexican, to be this girl that one day dreamt of carrying the flag for her country.”

Lopez joins fellow Razorback alum Maria Fassi (Fah-si) on Mexico’s women’s golf team. The tournament begins play on August 3rd.
