And I have a wedding the first Sunday of MD that I have to travel to so I have no chance to go unless I go to the finals which I probably won't

I am too. She shouldn't have said that, but the penalty was way too harsh and people really overreacted. It's sad that many don't know her and are hating her now for no reason (people from other countries). I heard that she isn't sure if she will continue her career . She better though!!

Also I think she got banned because of her XA tweets that the HOC probably was against, so they used the joke as an excuse to ban her. I don't support XA but those are Voula's political views and it's freedom of speech if she feels like expressing them

Re: ~~~The Chat Thread~~~

gmak, I want your opinions on the Greek Olympic performances in athletics
First time since 1988 no athletics medal for Greece . It was kinda expected though

Re: ~~~The Chat Thread~~~

Helsinki starting
SEGAS caught Routas doping . But it's been a few years since a Greek athlete was caught so we've been clean lately

As of now this is the Greek team for London:
20km Walk-Zapounidou
3000m Steeplechase-Kokkinariou
Javelin-Lika, Korosidou
Triple Jump-Papachristou, Perra, Paneta
Pole Vault-Kyriakopoulou, Ledaki, E.Stefanidi
High Jump-Stergiou
*Hopefully others can make it, but this is a deep squad. It would be nice if some triple jump girls could make the long jump. Papachristou said that she was going to talk with her coach and decide if they were going to do both events. Where are Kokloni and Karastamati for 100m? Maybe if they can make it we can have a 100m relay team, but I don't know where they are. Hantzi-Neag is still trying, but I doubt she will make it since she is getting old, but hopefully I'm wrong. Maybe girls like Derveni and Ferra can make it? *Overall I guess this is a good team so I can't complain even though there are some others who can be there but I think they retired (Efedaki, Terzoglou, Kalpakidou, Gazea, Papadopoulou, etc.)
20km Walk-Papamichail
50km Walk-Papamichail
High Jump-Baniotis, Chondrokoukis
Javelin-Lebesis, G.Filippidis
Shot Put-Stamatogiannis
Long Jump-Tsatoumas
Pole Vault-K.Filippidis
*The men's team isn't as strong as the women's team but hopefully some others can qualify like Papadopoulos, Tsiamis, Dimitrakis, Diamantaras, G.Tsakonas, Tremos, etc.

Re: ~~~The Chat Thread~~~

European champs in June but most of the big names won't compete as it is too close to London

in the Olympic years,the European championships will replace the European Cup

Re: ~~~The Chat Thread~~~

Olympics will be great as we have chances for medals in athletics, swimming, water polo, rowing, gymnastics, judo, taekwondo, basketball, sailing, etc.

When is the next big athletics event?
And also you should post more in the Greek players threads . Did you hear about Grammatikopoulou?

Re: ~~~The Chat Thread~~~

Chondrokoukis won gold with 2.33m PB
MASSIVE jump, was around 2.35-2.36m worth

Baniotis in 4th with 2.31 =SB

amazing display by the Greek duo

Greece ending with the same number of golds as Russia (1)
who would've thought?

Re: ~~~The Chat Thread~~~

I think Filandra finished 9th actually


Tsatoumas was so bad in the final

Hopefully we can win a medal in the high jump...
Mar 10th, 2012 12:20 PM
Re: ~~~The Chat Thread~~~

Tsatoumas qualified for the final with 8.00m on his 1st attempt
Baniotis and Chondrokoukis too with 2.29m in qualifying

Douvalidis had a mess of a race and went out (7.83)

Tsatoumas and Filippidis compete in the finals in a few hours
Mar 9th, 2012 01:41 PM
Re: ~~~The Chat Thread~~~

Paneta 13.98
Filandra 2.02 11th out of 18, she ran a brave race

It's Tsatoumas now, whatever that means

the only ones I'm sure they haven't retired are Iakovakis, Kefala, Karastamati and Hantzi
not sure about the others

Re: ~~~The Chat Thread~~~

Good luck to all of them! I've been looking up Olympic Qualification and i have some questions. *According to wikipedia, so far we have qualified with A:
Women: Papachristou, Paneta, Zapounidou, Kyriakopoulou
Men: Douvalidis, Hondrokoukis, G.Filippidis, K.Filippidis, and Tsatoumas
Women: Lika, Papageorgiou
Men: Tsakonas, Poulios, Stamatogiannis, Papadimitriou, Stefanopooulos

From doing my own research, I've discovered that the following athletes make the A standard but aren't mentioned on wikipedia:
Women: Kokkinariou
Men: Baniotis
And the following make the B standard as of now but can't go unless they make the A standard:
Women: Ledaki, E.Stefanidi
Men: Lebesis

We also have some athletes that are close to making it, like Derveni, Smalios, Stergiou, Ifadidou, P.Iakovakis, G.Tsakonas, Tsiamis, Perra, Skafida, Kokloni, Filandra, Moustakas, etc.
We have some who have an outside chance of making it, like Ferra, Fraggos, men 4x400 relay, etc.

And I also have some questions to ask you if any of the following have retired: S.Iakovakis, Gravalos, Kefala, Donta, Abatzidou, Gazea, Strataki, Dova, Redoumi, Hantzi-Neag, Efedaki, Terzoglou, Kalpakidou, Karastamati, Tsoumeleka, Xinou, S.Papadopoulou, and Hatzipanagiotidou*

Thanks for any info
