As of August 4, 2012, Greece has won two bronze medals at the 2012 Summer Olympic Games that are held in London. On the eighth day of the Olympics, Greece’s women’s rowing team, which is comprised of Christina Giatzitzidou and Alexandra Tsiavou, won third place in the LTW Double. In addition, Ilias Iliadis was awarded the first medal for Greece, winning bronze in judo in the middleweight competition. Previously, at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece, Iliadis had won the gold medal in the half-middleweight competition.
Yesterday, the legendary Empire State Building, situated in New York City, honored Greece’s participation at these Olympic Games by shining blue and white lights in the building’s south side.
Congratulations to these winners so far on their accomplishments! We wish the Greek athletes all the best of luck in their remaining days at the 2012 London Olympic Games and hope they triumph in the athletic events that they partake.
