Athens 2004

Athens 2004

This time in Athens 2004, Greece's 441-member Olympic team features several medal hopefuls in track and field and weightlifting. Kenteris followed his Sydney gold with 200m titles at the 2001 World and 2002 European Championships. Greece's other sprinting hero, Katerina Thanou, won silver in the 100m in Sydney, bronze at the 2001 World Championships and gold at the 2002 European Championships. Periklis Iakovakis, a bronze medalist in the 400m hurdles at last year's World Championships, has a chance to become the first Greek to win an Olympic hurdles medal at Athens 2004. Greece's best hope for a track and field triumph in Athens 2004 may be Mirela Manjani, the 2000 silver medalist and two-time world champion in women's javelin. Anastasia Kelesidou and Ekaterini Voggoli are both medal contenders in women's discus in the Athens 2004 olympics.
