Our Champion for Peace

Pyrros Dimas

« Success in sports gives you an invisible power to reach a lot of people, communities and transmit the love and values that sport carries. A Champion is considered a true champion only when he can realise this invisible power and uses it to create peace »


Dimas is the most decorated Greek athlete in the Olympics and is widely considered as one of the greatest weightlifters of all time, having been three times Olympic Gold Medalist (in his fourth Olympiad, a knee injury notwithstanding, he won the Bronze medal), and three times World Champion. As a light-heavyweight, he has set 11 world records.
