Yiannis was inspired by the 2012 London Olympics to do something and get fit after coming home from work seeing the Triathlon on the TV. With no sporting background prior and unable to swim Yiannis started his journey. He had some long term injuries and nearly gave up, which lead to him to compete in Aquathlon (Swim/Run) where he qualified for GB in his age group for the European Aquathlon Championships 2016 where he achieved a Bronze medal there and at the National championships in his first year of the sport.
Combined with motivation and hard work Yiannis is determined to show anything is possible.
