Georgios Karampetsos to lead Greek Volleyball through to 2024
News from the National Federations

Athens, Greece, March 30, 2021. Georgios Karampetsos will lead the Greek Volleyball family for another term, following elections held on Saturday evening, where he retained his position as President of the Hellenic Volleyball Federation. His mandate now runs up until 2024.

The General Assembly and elections, originally planned for last year but delayed following the postponement of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics due to the COVID-19 pandemic, took place virtually in compliance with the lockdown restrictions currently in place in Greece, with the delegates casting their votes through an ad-hoc online platform.

As many as 274 out of 276 eligible people took part, with Karampetsos receiving 69.7% of the votes or 191 of the ballots cast.

“I would like to welcome the new members who join us in the administration of the Hellenic Volleyball Federation,” said Karampetsos following the elections. “All together we will strive for the common goal which is to improve the position and status of our National Teams internationally, the upgrading of the National competitions organised under our wing and the development of the sport.”

“Furthermore, I would like to thank all those that honoured me with their vote,” added the former international referee who wound up an outstanding career at the London 2012 Olympic Games. “It was a vote of confidence following a difficult first term and in the midst of this unprecedented health crisis that has hit hard our sport, the greater sporting community and society in general.”

Mr Karampetsos has been elected into the Board of Administration of the National Olympic Committee as well.

His opponent for the presidency, Michalis Triantafyllidis, a legendary star player of the National Team and Olympiacos Piraeus in the 1980s and 1990s and a bronze medallist from the 1987 European Championship, received 80 votes.

Of the 21 members of the board, former National Team coach Kostas Charitonidis received the most votes with 161.

Another former international referee, Themis Kalpaktsoglou, presided over the proceedings following his election as chairperson of the General Assembly.
