No thanks file, just back from the pub, enough drinking for tonight... bar a coffee.

CY attention turns to ace swimmer Karolina Pelendritou (Gold Medal Winner in Athens and Beijing and first ever winner of any Paralympics medal for CY) in the 100m breaststroke SB12 with heats and final on Saturday.

On qualifying times, she's lengths ahead of the other swimmers... http://www.london2012.com/paralympics/s ... index.html

KP is from Limassol and is visually impaired.

yes good luck to her.

It is refreshing to see the Paralympians getting publicity which they deserve,possibly rather more than the professional sportsmen in the regular games.

Costas Costa was the Cypriot Ronald Koeman, because of his long-range, poweful free kicks. His mum is from Scotland.

Not related to the English Cypriot comedian with the same name. :wink:
