Bwin keeps supporting the athletes of the sponsoring scheme “Next Generation of Olympic Medalists”, even though the Olympic Games have been postponed.
The Next Generation of Olympic Medalists can keep counting on the support of bwin, which remains true to its philosophy, despite the fact that the Olympic Games have been postponed.
Covid-19 has had a huge impact in sports. Championships were postponed, events were canceled, and many athletes face real uncertainty. The Olympic Committee could not risk the health of anyone involved in the Olympics and the Tokyo Games were postponed to 2021. The announcement was made by the Prime Minister of Japan, Shinzō Abe, after consulting IOC President, Thomas Bach.
This development had a significant effect on athletes, who were on the final stage of their preparation to qualify for the Olympic Games, trying to realize the dream of a lifetime. A lot of them face an uncertain future. Bwin keeps supporting the members of the “Next Generation of Olympic Medalists” unconditionally, to make sure that this would not be the case for them.
The sponsorship program “We support the Next Generation of Olympic Medalists” aids 10 extremely talented individual athletes, who strive daily to achieve their goals and they shouldn’t be distracted by any difficulty. Therefore, bwin’s support is extremely important. The Olympic Games may have been postponed, but the intensity of their efforts should not be reduced.
Byron Kokkalanis (windsurfing), Dora Gountoura (fencing), Katerina Dalaka (track and field), Eleni Kelaiditi (rhythmic gymnast), Odysseas Mouzenidis (shot put), Dimitris Papadimitriou (sailing), Konstantinos Mastrogiannis (karate), Alexandros Kalpogiannakis (windsurfing), Konstantinos Zikos (track and field) and Ioannis Sgouropoulos (table tennis) continue to chase their dreams, knowing that bwin will be by their side even in the most difficult times, thus contributing actively to Greek sports in general.
