So far today, Kiriakos Zotos qualifies for the finals in men's shot put. He will also compete in discus throw. In 30 minutes qualification of the men's javelin throw. I expect Ioannis Kyriazis to qualify.

Iliana Korosidou automatically qualifies for the finals with a throw of 65.34m. No such luck for Stamatia Skarvelis to join her.

Kiriakos Zotos finished 10th in men's shot put 
Irini-Ria Mihala finished  13th place timed 35:04.60 which is her personal best. Usually, long-distance running is not a strength for Greece. She could have a positive future in other long-distance running events. Only 19 years old!

Theodora Arabatzi qualifies with her personal best at 54.79m. She will be just two Greek athletes competing tomorrow with Zaharias Tsamoudakis in the 20k race walk.

Today, 4 Greek athletes competing in field event finals for a chance at the medals 

Ioannis Kyriazis given the greatest chance.
Iliana Korosidis might have a shot  if she throws way better than her personal best at 66.68m. 
Both Eleni Polak and Stamatia Skarvelis don't have much of a chance, but hopefully give us a good showing.

Silver medal for Ioannis Kyriazis! I am still very happy consider the circumstance he was  going through early in the competition. It is the very first medal for him at any level and their will be more to come.

In the Under 20 European Championship in Grosseto, Italy 
Miltiadis Tentoglou and Emmanouil Karalis are heavy favorites to medal for Greece. The rest? I wish them the best.

Good news for some  Greek runners 

Anna Kafia in the 400m hurdle  won her heat with a time of 59.48 to go to the semifinals. Athanasios Kalakos in the 800 m finished 2nd in the heat with a time of 1:52:55 to go the semifinals. Yesterday in the 1500 m, Giorgios-Panagiotis Miliaras qualified for the finals finishing with a time of 3:48:88.

Very shocked and disbelieve that Emmanouil Karalis has been eliminated from the qualifying round without a single mark. I had high hopes he was going to medal like he was before. :(

First medal in the under 20 European Championship for Greece goes to Odisseas Mouzenidis in men's shot put and it's bronze. He broke the Under 20 national record with a throw of 20.67. He was 8 centimeters short of breaking the Greek national record (20.74).

He is quite far from breaking the Greek NT of 20.74. The record he broke today is with the junior shot which weighs 6 kg. The men's shot weighs 7.26 kg. His best mark this year with men's shot put is 18.46 m. He is considered as one of the biggest talents in Greek track.

Karalis failed because during one of his jumps his pole broke and he could not continue.

Good job by my patrioti Tentoglou who won the gold in long jump.

Athanasios Kalakos won the semifinal heat in stunning fashion to break the U 20 national record at 1:48.59. He will be in lane 8 tomorrow for a chance at a medal.
