I don't think that is the final list. Baniotis and Kyriazis are battling injuries and might not be able to take part. They will not compete at the Greek championships this weekend.

Damn, I was looking forward to see the Texas A & M student in javelin throw!
Your right though, there is a reserve list of Greek athletes who will be in Lille, I just didn't have the time to post them.

I expect Greece to finish well above the bottom 3 to avoid relegation to the FIRST LEAGUE.

Filippidis will not travel to Lille due to injury. Patsoukakis will take his place.

He will be out for at least 40 days after the surgery on his knee. There is a chance he will miss the world championships as well.

That will be a big blow 
At least in the World Championship we get to see Usain Bolt one last time. : D

Today we had qualifying rounds in some  of the events.

Unfortunately we missed qualifying to the finals in men's 400 and 400 meter hurdles, which means we will receive only two points for the standings.

Results:

MEN

100m: 4. Tsakonas 10.39 (Q)
200m: 1. Tsakonas 20.33 (Q)
400m: 11. Pappas  48.65  (DNQ)
110m Hurdles:  5. Douvalidis  13.54  (Q)
400m Hurdles:  11. Nakos  52.16  (DNQ)

WOMEN

100m: 4. Keramids 11.54 (Q)
200m: 4. Belibasaki  23.27 (Q)
400m: 4. Vasiliou  52.52  (Q)
100m Hurdles:  2. Pesiridou  13.03  (Q)
400m Hurdles:  8. Dalaka 58.09  (Q)

They count, but since both athletes finished dead last they only get 1 point each.

Both Stefanidi and Papachristou won their respective events to give Greece maximum 11 points (22 points total). 
Surprisingly, Kyriazis finished 2nd in men's javelin throw outdueling Olympic Champion Rohler to grab 10 points. 
I seriously think Kyriazis has serious potential to be one of the top javelin throwers in the world.

On another surprising result, in women's discus throw Anagnostopoulou finished 3rd behind Robert-Michon and Muller for 9 points. 

Tsakonas finished 4th in the 100m finals, good effort from him. I would expect him to win the 200m.

Greece will remain in the SUPER LEAGUE for the upcoming 2019. 

They beat Belarus by 8 points to avoid relegation. :-)

And also thanks to the fact that Russia was not allowed to compete. Otherwise we would be going down as well.

Too bad the timing mechanism failed. She would have been close to breaking the Greek record in the event.

I know! They officially gave her 22.76, on the European Athletics website, it said 22.6-. We were hoping she broke the Greek national record.

Let's keep this in mind, Greece need to produce more top athletes by training outside of Greece, especially in the United States.

Agreed. There are quite few already.

Don't know what happened to Alexi Pappas and why she is not competing these days. She could really helped us in the middle distance events. I hope she did not become a Greek citizen just to compete in the 2016 Olymoics.

I read she was doing other stuff other than running, like acting and writing.
