Greek sport is in the process of returning to normality, following the COVID-19 crisis. The pandemic that has hit our planet resulted in the postponement of the Tokyo Olympic Games for 2021, turning upside down the preparation of the athletes, the Sport Federations and the Hellenic Olympic Committee’s planning.
We all need to adjust to the new reality, start new planning as of now and resume preparations for next summer.
The HOC, as always, will stand by our elite athletes despite the substantial finanacial losses we have incurred. We are committed to continue supporting our athletes in every possible way having in mind that the road to training is demanding and extremely difficult.
Despite all challenges triggered by the pandemic, our target remains the same: to ensure that the biggest number of athletes qualify for the Games in Tokyo.
Let us stand all together, united for the benefit of Greek Sport!
Hellenic Olympic Committee President, IOC Member
