Today we will be keeping an eye on hammer thrower Stavroula Kosmidou. She has a personal best at 68.21. She should qualify for the finals and have a very good chance at a medal. The other hammer thrower, Panayiota Friggi might qualify if she can do better than 64.55.

If only Ioannis Granitsiotis had not been injured, he would be running both the 100 and 200 meters. He is considered the "next Kostas Kenteris".

Ioannis Kamarinos in men's 110m hurdles have qualified for the finals by having the best 2 times (q) by breaking his personal best (13.70). I knew in my heart he was going to pull through. 🙂

Bronze medal for Spiridoula Karidi in the women's long jump! She broke a Greek National Under 18 record of 6.23. She will also perform in the women's triple jump where she is favored to win a medal.

Elina Tzengo broke the Under 18 Greek National record with an incredible throw of 55.88! I pray she will bring Greece it's only gold medal of the games.

Spiridoula Karidi broke the Under 18 Greek National Record with a personal best jump at 13.15. She is one of the favorites to medal in the finals.

For the second time in the competition, a Greek athlete facing 4th place makes a last ditch effort to grab a medal. 
Gerasimos Kalogerakis broke his personal best with a incredible throw of 77.45 to win silver. This is the most surprising result I have ever seen.

Good effort from Ioannis Kamarinos in the boys 110m hurdles. Finished 5th with a time of 13.90.

A very, very disappointing performance by Elina Tzengo as she finished 7th. She threw 53.84 on her first attempt, afterwards struggled to find a good distance on her next four throws until she finished the last one with 52.18. I had high hopes for her to get a medal (even gold).

Spiridoula Karidi came so close in getting the bronze medal by missing on her last jump (13.27) by 2 centimeters.

I see 4 medals for Greece 

Stefanidi is a lock for sure, only competitor threatening her is Sidorova
Papachristou is currently leading Europe  this season (14.74) and looks like in fine form, should medal
Tentoglou is second in Europe (8.24), he should get his first senior medal after months of improvement
Belibasaki is 7th in the 400 m (51.14), she is capable of reaching the finals and maybe medal. She proved in the World Indoor Championship she can compete in the 400. 

If I have to pick 2 Greek athletes who may surprise us it's both Spanoudaki and Anastasakis

Mihail Anastasakis will be throwing in group A (12th) 
The men's hammer throw in the European Championship has changed to 76.00 to automatically qualify. He will need to throw at least 75 meters to go to the finals. His seasons best is 76.53. 

Nikolas Scarvelis will be throwing in group B (9th) 
Men's shot put automatic spot is 20.40 and he will be in the finals if he throws at least 19.90 or better. His seasons best is 20.12

Miltos Tentoglou will be jumping in group B (1st) 
Men's long jump automatic spot is 8.00 and he should be able to achieve this. His seasons best is 8.24

In the 100 m men's, Ioannis Nyfantopoulos will be running in Heat 2, top 2 in the heat go through automatically with the top 5 times. His seasons best (personal as well) is 10.30. He may have a 50/50 chance to go to the semifinals.

In the 100 m women's Rafaela Spanoudaki will be running in Heat 3, top 3 in the heat go through automatically with the top 4 times. Her seasons best (personal as well) is 11.27. She should reach the semifinals.
