She is in the process of getting Greek citizenship so she can compete for Greece. One of the biggest talents in Greek track & field.

Do not know if this is just a joke but according to ekathimerini.com Greece’s athletics team for this month’s European Games in Belarus will fly there in the prime minister’s government jet, after sports officials couldn’t find seats on commercial flights for them.

The country’s track and field federation, Segas, said Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras placed the plane at its disposal Thursday, shortly after it had announced its withdrawal from the event due to the ticket problem.

Segas says 15 Greek track-and-field athletes are due to take part in the June 21-30 games in Minsk.

No edit. But these games do not involve track and field. If an admin wants to remove this post to another section: be my guest

The good old Golden Spike track meet in Ostrava. Used to attend this meet every year as a youngster when I was growing up in Ostrava. I have seen some very famous world athletes competing at this meet.
