LATE OLYMPIC CALL
She was a late addition to the 53kg event of the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, and had to travel from her home in Greece to Albania when she heard the news. "I finished training and was sleeping. When I saw my phone I had many missed calls and messages. I was scared because the first message I read said I needed to leave for Albania quickly. I called my father who told me the news. I cried. I did not expect and did not believe it. It took me five minutes to be convinced." (top-channel.tv, 31 Jul 2016)
