Savvas Thomoglou finished the heat with the second fastest time in the 200m breaststroke with a time of 2:14.94 to qualify for the finals. He has a good chance to get Greece a third medal. Fingers crossed!

Antonia Sakellaridou won bronze in a mixed multi-discipline team, which does not count as an individual medal for Greece, but for "Mixed-NOC". I think this is a stupid rule in Summer Youth Olympic Games.

In girl's javelin throw, Elina Tzengo made a monster throw on her second attempt in qualification by breaking her personal best of 62.47. It is also a new Greek national junior record. I pray to God she will perform like this in the finals.

Olga Fiaska won bronze in the 5000 meters race walk
Elina Tzengko as expected won gold in the women's javelin throw (61.74). She reminds me of a very young version of Barbora Spotakova. This is pure joy for her after she failed to medal in the Under 18 European Championship.
