Quotes by the coach of Greece and the gold medalists in the 80kg and 90kg categories in Men’s Beach Wrestling

Vasilis BATALAS (GRE):

“This sport requires preparation because it involves a lot of tactics. We’ve been working on it for a while and it came off. From the 7 medals in Pescara, we went up to 9 in Patras. Overall we are better at both men’s and women’s. Orthopali is ancient Greek, fought with the same regulations and it is our honor to represent it. ”


“The event was great. In the final, there was no competition because two Greeks competed against each other. My goal is take part inthe Tokyo Olympics. ”

Pedro Jacinto GARCIA PEREZ (ESP)

“It was my first time in Greece. I loved the event, the people and the food. I am happy but also tired because we have been fighting for two days. The way I compete against Grigoris KRIARIDIS is based on tactics, so every time the result is open. ”
