by Armando M.   The IFBB Diamond Cup celebrated in Athens (November 25th to 27th) gave us images of pure respect for the sport, as the recognition awards presented from the IFBB and the Greek Bodybuilding & Fitness Federation (EOSD) to some of the athletes that represented Greece, in the last 2016 Paralympic Games celebrated in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil).

The Hellenic Paralympic Committee -chaired by Mr. Georgios Fountoulakis-, made a great performance in this Games, reaching 13 medals (5 golds, 4 silver and 3 bronzes) in 12 different paralympic sports. Some of this athletes, resident in Athens, were awarded as well by President Santonja and EOSD president, Mr. Jordan Leventelis, in recognition for its overcoming spirit and sport courage: two capital conditions in Bodybuilding sport, as well.
