The annual sports banquet took place on Thursday, May 31st at the Grand Hyatt Hotel and it was a wonderful event for all those that attended. Parents, guests, coaches, administrators and approximately 200 athletes joined together for a wonderful celebration of the sports year that just ended. Athletes received their letter, pins and certificates and special awards were presented to those that excelled!
Our guest speaker, Spyros Gianniotis, World Champion and Silver medalist in the Rio Olympics in the 10 km Open Water swimming event, was an inspiration to all of us. It was an honor for us to have him with us and he was presented with a Recognition Award by the ACS Athens community.
