Russia has been banned from the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang by IOC for systemic doping violations. Some of their athletes might be allowed to take part as independent athletes.

Besides the 4 Greek athletes competing in the Winter Olympics, there is another Greek taking part but competing for Denmark. Elena Rigas is competing in speed skating. Here is a short video about her.

She was also the flag bearer for Denmark in the opening ceremnonies:

Angelis was 74th out of 80 competitors. Normal for a Greek athlete in Winter Olympics competition. He will also take part in the 15 KM Freestyle race.

Danou will compete in the 10 KM Freestyle race.

Antoniou and Ralli  will take part both in Slalom and Giant Slalom competititions.

Most likely. She will finish somewhere in the middle of the pack if we go by her past results in the Olympics

BTW Angelis finished 74th in the same event in the last Olympics as well.

That's a 6 position improvement for Ralli as opposed to the Sochi 2014 competition. In Vancouver 2010 she finished 53rd in the same event. She will also compete in the Slalom competition.

As for Danou, she did worse than in Vancouver 2010, where she finished 73rd in the same event.
