The European Fair Play Award to the Greek Paralympian Athanasios Prodromou!

For the first time in history, Paralympian Athanasios Prodromou will receive the European Fair Play Award, following a proposal by the Greek Paralympic Committee. The jury of the European Fair Play Movement announced the winners of the European Fair Play awarded to various personalities, organizations, advertising campaigns for the year 2022 in the various 7 categories provided by the EFPM.

The award ceremony will take place on November 3, 2022 at the Salone d'Honor of CONI at the Foro Italico in Rome, on the occasion of the EFPM European Conference. The event is organized by the European Fair Play Movement and the National Committee for Fair Play of Italy with the central theme: "Rome 1957 – 2022: European Values – Contribution of sport and fair play to peace".

In his first participation in the Paralympic Games, Athanasios Prodromou not only managed to win a medal, but also to make world public opinion bow to his ethos. The Greek athlete "threw" at 7.17 m in the final of the long jump T20 and celebrated the silver medal. He started athletics at the age of 14, when his coach, Anestis Mandartzidis, believed in his talent. The relationship they have developed over the years is like father to son. And Athanasios was very sorry that he did not manage to have him by his side in Tokyo. But he vindicated him by winning the medal.
