Greek gymnast Lefteris (Eleftherios) Kosmidis won the gold medal on Sunday May 27th in the European Gymnastics Championships at Montpellier, France.
Alongside Kosmidis, three more Greek athletes partcipated in the individual finals. Another Greek athlete, Vlassis Maras, won the bronze medal.
Kosmidis, who unfortunately has not qualified for the 2012 London Olympics, gave it his all at Montpellier, as this was his main challenge for the year. He got the top spot in floor exercises with 15,766 points. The second athlete had 15,300 points.
This was the first European gold for Kosmidis, who had already won a world gold medal before. At the 2011 World Cup in Cottbus he won the gold medal in floor exercises, having scored 15.525 points. That same year, in another World Cup in Moscow, he won the silver medal in floor exercises with 14.500 points on May 14, 2011.

Remarkably Greece is producing quite a number of European champions in a variety of sports despite their economic position.

I say well done to them.
I'd hate to see a doping scandal afterwards....
