For the… trick of the year, the Greek delegation goes to Tokyo with Evangelia Platanioti. The president of KOE, Kyriakos Giannopoulos and the executive director of the Federation, Giannis Giannouris, together with the athlete σαν chased her participation in the Olympic Games in Tokyo and it remains to be seen if they will be justified, which is not at all easy.
Evangelia Platanioti a few days ago had tested positive for the coronavirus and had not traveled with the mission to Tokyo. In fact, EOE had informed about it without mentioning the name of the athlete.
"Unfortunately, the athlete will not travel to Tokyo and will not take part in the Olympic Games. "EOE expresses its support to the athlete who loses the dream of participating in the Olympic Games", said the announcement of the Hellenic Olympic Committee.
Finally, Platanioti, got on the plane and travels to Tokyo without this meaning that she will catch up and participate in the Games. Everything will be judged in the technical meeting on Sunday (1/8), where the Greek side will declare Evangelia Platanioti and it remains to be seen if her participation will be accepted.
The Greek champion, who won two medals in the recent European Championship, underwent successive tests in the last few days and from the moment two negative self tests appeared and came out negative and the molecular one, she got on the plane.
