Cyprus: Olympiad no barrier to friendship

Despite the late arrival, the Cypriot team – Angelos Pelecanos, Angelos Assos, Evripidis Papaevripidis and Aristeidis Tziapouras – play ninja with their attache outside their accommodation.

-Hello! You’ve just recently arrived in Kazan – what are your first impressions? Everything to your liking?

-Yes – it’s really cool here – they’re looking after us really well! The girls here are really nice, as is the food.

-Do you have any experience of previous big competitions?

-Yes – we’ve all been to International Olympiads before: some once, some twice, some four times. Angelos Pelecanos won bronze last year in Kazakhstan!

-What are you hoping for in Kazan?

-Victory and only victory! But we came here not just for the Olympiad, but also to meet new people and see the city.

-Do you have any traditions?

-Yes – we fly out together with the team from Greece. At the closing ceremony we write out our names and competition scores – it’s a great tradition!
