Eleftherios Petrounias, our Lord of the Rings. Editorial at Mr Porter journal.

Posted on August 18, 2016 | , | 0 Comments

The Olympic Greek champion Eleftherios Petrounias  was featured in a post for Mr Porter journal, shot by Neil Bedford. The 26-year-old athlete talks about his daily routine, his dreams, the difficulties he had to face during his career, the people who support him.


With one eye on the future, Mr Petrounias is studying communications and marketing at Athens University of Economics and Business. He claimed that he is planning to switch his focus to his studies once the Olympic Games are over, because trying to do two things at the same time is too demanding.


And when someone asks him, ” what is the secret of success” he gives an answer, all great athletes had given in the past. There is no secret, only hard work. Dedication. Faith. When someone is doing elite sport will face uncountable difficulties, dissapointments, frustration. Too many times will try to give up. But all the sorrow will dissapear with one positive result. It gives you strength to move on.


There is an informal ration when it comes to elite sport and championship. 1000 sorrows and only one joy. But the  that joy..oh that kind of joy!
