A pretty good showing from the Greeks today in Serbia. Elina Tzengko could qualify for the Olympic Games after a massive throw of 61.42 that could move her up in the World Athletics ranking. Chrisoula Anagnostopoulou produced a season's best throw of 59.87 which should lock her up for the Olympic Games. We will wait and see what Spanoudaki will do tomorrow in the 200 meters to see if she is a lock. It's very unlikely that Scarvelis, Baniotis, Vasiliou, Gusin, Tsiamis, and Pesiridou will qualify.

Miltos Tentoglou became the first male Greek athlete to win the Diamond League. 
He finished the competition at 8.42, needed a big effort on his 5th attempt to beat Marquise Dendy (who was leading after 3 jumps).

In the European Throwing Cup, I believe Greece will get 2 medals. The only time Greece won 2 medals in the same year of this competition was 2003 (Alexandros Papadimitriou - silver Steliana Tsikouna - bronze) and 2017 (Chrysoula Anagnostopoulou - bronze Paraskevas Baltzavaltis - bronze)

Greece got 2 bronze medals this morning from Anastasia Dragomirova (15.43m) and Orestis Dousakis (68.78m) 
Tzengko performing next, Anastasakis and Frantzeskakis will perform later since there was a rain delay early.

Frantzeskakis won Greece's third bronze medal of the day with a mark of 74.96m. First time ever Greece ends up with three medals in the same calendar year of the European Throwing Cup. Tomorrow, the only athlete who could win a medal is Kyriazis. It all depends if he can rediscover his form from 2017, throwing over 80 meters on a consistent bases. Mouzenidis will likely not medal since he can't throw over 20 meters. His progression is very slow and isn't showing signs he has what it takes to be an elite shot putter.

Kyriazis did indeed get a medal, it is bronze finishing 3rd with a mark of 80.52m (season's best) and Greece ends the competition with 4. 
I would say this is the best showing ever for Greece in this event. :gogreece:
