Solid gold for Greece's National Women's Water Polo Team in Shanghai earlier today!!! 

After the Silver Medal in the Athens 2004 Olympic Games, and the second placing in the European Championships in Zagreb last year, Greece's National Women's Water Polo Team has made history, beating China with a  9 - 8 win and bringing its first ever gold medal home to Greece !!!

A great victory for the team  and a wonderful shot in the arm for Greece right now! 

As Greece's National Anthem was being played  at the other end of the world there wasn't a dry eye in the house... just the tonic we needed to keep our morale high and bring back the smiles for all of us! 

A great team from a little country with a lot of heart, a country with a population of 11 million took on a country of 1 billion and won... no mean achievement at all!

Bravo and thank you, ladies!

Wherever we are in the Global Greek World, you've done us proud! 

Μπράβο κορίτσια - πάντα τέτοια!!! 

Ο Ελληνισμός, όπου κι'αν βρισκόμαστε, σας ευχαριστεί πολύ - μας κάνατε περήφανους!!!
