Gold medal for Cretan paralympic George Kostakis

George Kostakis is the European Champion in triple jump (T47 cat.) in IPC European Athletics Championship 2014 in Swansea.

He won the gold medal (13 m 78 cm), while Christos Koutoulias was third (13 m 05 cm).

“I feel great. This is my first major gold medal. I won bronze at the World Championships last year so it’s nice to go even better with a gold. We were not happy because the wind was in our faces, so the distance weren’t great. I was hoping for more but the medal is the most important thing.”, said the Cretan athlete.
