I needed more concentration and struggled with my mind to overcome some doubts. Nevertheless, everything went very well. "

However, he did not hide his optimism, emphasizing: "I am sure that the final in the rings will be even better and an even better appearance will come, since I will be relaxed, without pain, more focused and more ready than ever.
My main opponent is the Chinese champion who will compete after me, just like at the Rio Olympics.
I hope that with a very good appearance and a very high score, we will "cut off his legs" and it will be difficult for him to go even further, which is difficult anyway ".

For the impressive entry of Greece, head of the missions of all countries, in the parade of the Opening Ceremony with flag bearers himself and the top shooting athlete, Anna Korakaki to hold the flag together and lead the athletes of our country to the stadium, said:

We show that we are resisting all that has happened to the pandemic in humanity, sending a signal of normality.
Despite the difficulties, the athletes are here, showing fist and showing how we will move forward and win.
I am sure that my children, when they grow up, will be proud of their father ".

"The unbearable heat in Tokyo along with the humidity was the most difficult opponent I have faced, especially in training. Today, however, I did not feel it so much.
As a result, the preparation I did for days helped me.
At the beginning of the race I was anxious. It is the first time I participate in the Olympic Games, it is also my love for Greece that makes me want to win, but I did it. Everything went well and I feel great.
Nothing is certain for the future, but I will do my best. That's certain. "
