The words of Dimitris Papanikolaou "help sports in general and not just championships".
The words of Panagiotis Giannakis "there are no mountains...mountains are only made by our minds".
Sport builds the right society, sends messages and makes you think beyond yourself, outside your individual selfish circle.
For me and my family, sport is the medicine for our well-being but also the tool to give back to society by communicating inclusion and fighting for everyone's equal status in everyday life.
I would like to thank the president of the Conference and professor at TEFAA Komotini Mr. Antonis Kambas for the invitation and the honor of my award, the Dean of TEFAA Komotini Eleni Douda and professor Sofia Batsiu for their warm words and support for my project."
