Greek Athletes Have Secured Participation in 20 Sports at the London 2012 Olympics

96 Greek athletes have already secured their participation in 20 sports event out of 36 at the London 2012 Olympic Games beginning in July.

More specifically, our Greek champions will compete in athletics, sailing, swimming, gymnastics, judo, rowing, taekwondo, cycling,  fencing, wrestling, weightlifting and many other sports. Greek delegations comprise 64 men and 32 women in total while in 2008, 84 men and 72 women took part in the Olympic Games of Beijing .

However, it remains to be seen what the result of four more championships still in process will be. For example, tennis player Eleni Danniilidou who has participated in the Olympics of Sydney, Athens and Beijing, the Greek basketball team, some archery athletes and the beach volley team have not completed their participations yet.

Unfortunately, Greece will not be sending sports delegations to London in 12 other sports.
