H2O: 2 PARTS HEART, 1 PART OBSESSION
Born in 1991 and raised in Athens, Spyros says he has always had a special connection with water and sea. His journey began one day when he visited his brother at the natatorium, when he was only 10 years old.
He craves to put Kastelorizo, the easternmost Greek island, on the map, by swimming 140km nonstop from Rhodes.
On Monday, October 8, he began his endeavor to connect the capital of Dodecanese with the south earnest gate of Europe. After 30 hours of swimming 100 km, he decided to climb onto the boat that accompanied him. The second night of this great effort and while approaching the Kastelorizo shores, the weather conditions where extremely dangerous. The blowing winds of 5-6 Beauport in the area and a local phenomenon near the Turkish coast, caused nausea to Spyros.
He may not completed his personal goal, but he achieved to be a true ambassador of his country. Τhe world sees a man overcoming his boundaries and that alone provokes emotions. It was our great pleasure and honor to host him and his team at Mitsis Grand Hotel in Rhodes. We are waiting for his next goal!
