EVENING AT ZAPPEION HONOURING THE RIO 2016 HELLENIC OLYMPIC TEAM
Last autumn's event held by The Hellenic Olympic Committee was a beautiful and emotional evening. The Rio 2016 Hellenic Olympic team were honoured on their return, for their participation in the games and in the case of 6 athletes, honoured for becoming Olympians.
I met the former Queen of Greece who congratulated me for my costumes for The Olympic Torch Lighting Ceremony, telling me she had really liked them this year.
I had the honour of meeting and congratulating Olympians: Anna Korakaki, Eleftherios Petrounias, Panagiotis Mantis and Pavlos Kagialis, as well as the father of Katerina Stefanidi.
