Double Olympic luge champion Natalie Geisenberger has been invited to carry the DFB-Pokal trophy into Berlin's Olympic Stadium ahead of the final between giants Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.
The 28-year-old German, also a three-time world champion, will perform the important task ahead of one of her country's most anticipated football matches.
The DFB-Pokal is the premier knock-out competition in the German game and has been running for 73 years.
"This is a great honour," Geisenberger, who has won the International Luge Federation (FIL) World Cup for the past four years, said to German media ahead of the match on May 21.
Other Olympic gold medallists from Germany have been selected for the honour at past DFB-Pokal finals.
Last year fencer Britta Heidemann, the Beijing 2008 individual champion, was given the duty, while triple gold medal winning Alpine skier Maria Höfl-Riesch has also been trusted with the job.
Magdalena Neuner, who won two biathlon gold medals at Vancouver 2010, is another Olympic champion to appear at the final while former swimmer Franziska van Almsick, who won four Olympic silver medals and six bronze, has also appeared.
World kickboxing champion Christine Theiss and fashion model Eva Padberg are also on the list.
