Evangelia was born in 1994 and equally loved water and dance. At the end, she managed to combine both when at the age of 7 she began her artistic swimming career. The swimming pools became her passion and her achievements have proven that she did the right choice.
At top level
Platanioti has earned distinctive accomplishments, showing remarkable endurance and constant improvement, which not only permits her to remain on top level for many years, but also evolve as individual. In 2009 she defeated the representative of the sports’ powerhouse, Russia, in her solo routine and two years later she won a European medal in the duet. In 2012 she participated in London Olympic Games, which since then is considered a milestone for her. Of course, her date with the biggest sporting event of the world has been renewed. In 2016 she was part of the Rio Olympic games where she finished 10th, while she can keep dreaming as she’s a stone’s throw from securing the qualification to Tokyo Games.
Evangelia is constantly aiming in improvement and gives her best. In the pool she forms a duet together with Evelina Papazoglou, with whom they were teammates from young age and cooperate brilliantly. Besides artistic swimming, Platanioti has studied Economics and her artistic nature is expressed outside the pools, since she’s a keen admirer of acting and other forms of art. She dreams of actively contributing to the development of Greek sports when she ends her career, a goal which portraits a genuine dedication in what she loves most.
