The Water Skiing event at Lake Stratos on Friday, where the Slalom races are taking place had its own guest of honor.
The President of the World Water Skiing Federation (Wakeboard Federation), Mexican Jose Antonio PEREZ PRIEGO, was present in Agrinio.
Referring to the event, he noted:
-On the Water Skiing competitions:
“Really the level is very high. There are athletes who took part in the World Championship in Malaysia a few days ago and this is raising the level to a great extent. The Greek skier (Philippos KYPRIOS) is in great condition and in combination with the level of all athletes we expect to see a great final. I am happy to be watching the event of the Mediterranean Beach Games. Everything is going very well. "
-On the Lake Stratou venue:
“It’s my first visit here and I am impressed. The scenery is beautiful. Last time I came, I visited Lake Ioannina, which is also very nice. "
"I came yesterday and I have not been able to see the city well. My first impressions, however, are very good. We have all combined Greece, especially in summer, with the islands: Mykonos, Paros, Santorini, Naxos, and the other Aegean and Ionian islands. But judging from my first impression, I think Patras can be a pleasant summer destination. "
