Cyprus With 15 Swimmers In The GSSE

NICOSIA, 27 May 2009 Cyprus will be represented with 15 athletes--the best it has to offer--in the Swimming events of the XIII Games of the Small States of Europe.

The biggest name in the team is Anna Stylianou, the leading figure at the last Games, in Monaco two years ago. Stylianou won four out of the six swimming gold medals of Cyprus in 2007. Registered for seven events of CYPRUS 2009 (100m, 200m, 400m and 800m, Freestyle, as well as all the relays), Stylianou is now eager to surpass the four medals she had won two years ago.

But there are expectations for gold medals from other Cypriot swimmers too.

Anna Schoholeva is considered to be the new emerging star of Cyprus Swimming, judging from the results she had at recent international competitions.

Anastasia Christoforou arises as a favorite for a medal in the Breaststroke events, even though she has missed a big part of the preparation due to injury.

In the men's events Yannis Zinonos, Marios Panagi, and Alexandre Bakhtiarov are capable of clinching medals for Cyprus.
