 Alexandra Tsiavou and Christina Giazitzidou
Bronze Medallists - Women's Lightweight Double Sculls 
London 2012

Despite the economic doom and gloom fantastic news from London 2012 this afternoon!
A well-deserved bronze medal for Team Greece at the Olympics in the Women's Lightweight Double Sculls for World Champions Alexandra Tsiavou and Christina Giazitzidou,  giving us all another shot in the arm after the bronze from Ilias Iliadis  in the first week!

It was an amazing race... we watched with bated breath as Christina and Alexandra fought to the end for a medal. 

For a while there they were coming 2nd....

but an extra push from Team China at literally the last second put
Alexandra Tsiavou and Christina Giazitzidou an oar away from the silver!

Yay, we did it!!! Ta kataferame!


Moments to remember -  Η Γαλανόλευκη

Proud and happy Olympians!
