Crowds In Full Voice for Kyriacos Ioannou

NICOSIA, 18 May 2009 - The name of Kyriacos Ioannou will be cried out in full voice by the crowds turning up to watch the Track and Field events at the XIII Games of the Small States of Europe. The Cypriot world champion will be on hand to help his homeland secure as many medals as they can at the upcoming GSSE.

"The High Jump level at the GSSE is low, but I will take part anyway to give every bit of help to Cyprus. These Games are also a good chance for training ahead of other difficult competitions that are coming up", said Ioannou.

The Cypriot champion is aware of just how loved he is by the fans and how his participation at the Games will draw more crowds. "If my participation at these Games is important for the spectators, then my targets increase. It is true that we want to draw crowds at the Athletics events, because having support from the crowd is an important boost, not only for me but also for the other participating athletes."

 very tough schedule lies in waiting for Ioannou after the 2009 GSSE. He is set to take part in the Pancyprian Games, the European Cup, the Mediterranean Games and the World Championship. At all competitions, Ioannou has set high targets.

"Every competition has its own value. The Mediterranean Games are a big target but the World Championships are the biggest of the year. But above all, I hope that I will be fit enough. The rest is a matter of preparation and concentration," he commented.

Ioannou will go abroad for training on Monday, 18 May and is expected to return on the island on Sunday, 31 May, the eve of the Opening Ceremony of the XIII GSSE.
