Originating from Epirus, being a surgeon by profession, a person of persistence and tolerance by nature. My connection with open sea swimming limited. With the urge of my coach and of good friends, swimming is now a way of life for me. For me it’s a great challenge, joy and honor to be a member of the Greek mission that will put an effort to cross the English Channel for a good cause. And this cause gives me an extra reason as a person, athlete and doctor to give my full potential in this battle for the English Channel.
