In the Men's Two Person Dinghi - 470 Sailing, after 4 races

 

1. Croatia; net 4 pts

2. Australia; net 7 pts

3. Greece; net 9 pts

 

Field is made up of 26 countries, and there are total of 10 races between 11-16 Aug with points awarded depending on finishing positions (1 point for 1st, 26 points for 26th). Each boat is allowed to discard its worst score, and 10 boats with lowest accumulated scores reach the final on 18 Aug. In the final, points scored are doubled and added to the opening series' scores to determine top 10 positions and medals.

 

Greeks are ranked 4th in the world in this sport.

He finished 2nd in the B group of athletes. Group A competition takes place later today. That's where the medals will be decided. Hopefully he will manage to finish in the top 10.

Greece smashed Brazil on there home soil 9-4 !!!! Thanks to there 5 goal victory, they are now ahead in first place in Group A, due to goal difference. :)

On a side note, if Serbia loses tonight against Australia, they will be eliminated

If you guys recall Papachristou, she was the one banned from the 2012 London games because of a racist tweet she posted on social media.

How many more medals can we realistically grab?

Maybe 2 more from 2 different athletes and another one from the Men's Water Polo Team

Greece lost to Australia 12-7, even though Greece advances to the quarterfinals, I have a bad feeling that a loss like this one could get in there heads. It doesn't matter if they face Italy, Spain, Croatia, or Montenegro, you better bring your A game or it's go home.

In Synchronized Swimming, Greece pair Evangelia Papazoglou and Evangelia Platanioti finished 10th in Duet Free Routine with a score of 86.100. Tomorrow, they will perform the Duet Technical Routine. It's a good showing, but I am not expecting them to win medals.

As I watched the 110 m hurdle, Konstadinos Davoualidis finished first in Heat 4 with a time of 13.41 (5th best overall) and advance into the semifinals. I think he will need a better time in order to qualify for the finals.

As far as Filippidis goes in the Men's Pole Vault, he failed to convert his final 3 attempts and finished 7th. :(

Unbelievable finish in the 10KM open swim with Gianiotis defeating his opponent by 0.7 seconds.

 

Third gold medal for Greece!
