Competitive Swimming

\ Ultra Endurance Athlete

Georgios comes from the sporting world of swimming and initially excelled in competitive pool swimming.

He became Greek national champion and record holder and competed internationally with the Greek national swim team. He subsequently made the transition to open water marathon swimming after his first exposure with the sport in the icy waters surrounding the island-prison of Alcatraz in California.

He was the first ever Greek swimmer to compete at the open water marathon swimming world championships and consequently opened the way for other Greek swimmers to successfully follow in his steps. Nowadays he participates in open water swimming events and challenges in oceans, seas, rivers and lakes.

In 2015 Georgios was included amongst the greatest watermen in open water swimming world history
