Koniarakis secures Cyprus’  second medal at European Youth Olympic Festival

Cypriot discus thrower George Koniarakis won on Thursday the silver medal at the 13th European Youth Olympic Festival, taking place in Tbilisi, Georgia.

George Koniarakis achieved a 56.13m. throw in his second attempt, securing the silver medal.

“I am very pleased. I could have won the gold medal, but my opponent was strong and had a better throw. Nonetheless this is a great success for me and I am glad I got the medal,” he said.
