D imitris is a laser radial athlete; his involvement in this sport started at the age of 6 and he has been training at the Vouliagmenis Nautical Club since 2009.

A permanent position on the podium

He finished in third place in the World Championship in 2014; in second place at the European Championship in 2015; and in 2016 he finished in first place in the pan-European and World Championships within two weeks – it was the best summer of his life!

Like he says: “Professional sport is an even bigger challenge, both physically and mentally. You have competitors and you have to be calm and focused, while on the other hand you need to use your drive to give you momentum. Emotions are unique”.

Setting a path for gold

Dimitris has his heart set on the 2020 Olympic Games. He trains hard for this and is ready to give his best performance.
