Karolina Pelendritou wins Gold and Bronze in Tokyo while breaking a World and a European Record

Karolina Pelendritou's trip to Tokyo is concluded with the third Paralympic Gold Medal of her career and a World Record!

With a strategically conservative qualifying race, Karolina earned her ticket to the 100m Breaststroke final where she gave it her all, broke the World Record once again, and won the Gold Medal with a time of 1:19:78, leaving her immediate competitor Jia Ma from China, in second place.

The princess of the pool with her exceptional appearance in Tokyo, leaves with two medals (Gold and Bronze), a World and a European record! Our para-swimmer proved to us that the adverse conditions brought by the pandemic were only a small obstacle!

Since the Athens Paralympics in 2004, until today at the Tokyo Paralympics, Karolina Pelendritou has been on the Paralympic six times in total (3 Gold, 1 Silver and 2 Bronze medals) giving our country great moments of joy and pride!

The Board of Directors and the management of the Limassol Nautical Club warmly congratulate Karolina’s excellent presence in Tokyo and wish her every success with her future goals!
