Christou has won a total of 26 medals for Greece through his short career and has participated in a total of 14 international competitions around the world.


“I would like to thank INTRALOT for coming forth in support of my efforts and become my sponsor for the next two years,” said the champion. As part of the “Adopt an Athlete on the Road to Rio” program, INTRALOT received an award from the Greek Olympic Committee for its initiative to support the athlete. The prize was awarded to Mr. Antonios I. Kerastaris, INTRALOT Group Chief Financial Officer, at a special ceremony held on Monday at the headquarters of the Hellenic Olympic Committee in Athens, in the presence of government officials and representatives of sports organizations.
