Cyprus represented in Olympic Skiing

“Dinos is an awesome kid and a hard worker,” said Bates head coach Micaela Holland. “He’s really put all he can into the last year and a half, and it worked out, and we couldn’t be happier for him.”

Lefkaritis, the one-man team from the island nation of Cyprus, will compete in the men’s giant slalom on Feb. 18 and in the men’s slalom on Feb. 22. He’ll even get to carry the Cypriot flag at opening ceremonies on Feb. 9.

On the “Bates Bobcast” podcast, he said getting to the opening ceremonies has been “a long process.” He had dreamed about going to the Olympics since he began skiing at age 5, and he has competed in international competition for years.


...yiasou Dinos.

The Lefkaritis family visited their son last year for the Bates Carnival and brought “suitcases” full of Cypriot food – cured meats, cheeses, candies – “so we could experience the world of Dinos,” Holland said. “They’re very supportive of Dinos and Bates in general.”
