Judo was given another singular honour by the Cyprus Olympic Committee when our athlete Giogios Balajiasvili was chosen to carry the flag of Team Cyprus at the opening ceremony of the 15th European Youth Olympic Festival that is being held in Baku Azerbaijan.
Giorgios recently got a Gold Medal at the Games of the Small States of Europe in Montenegro, a Silver Medal at the Commonwealth Youth Games in 2017 and was selected to represent Cyprus at the Youth Olympic Games in Rio last year.
All of these factors made the Cyprus Olympic Committee choose Giorgios to be the flag bearer for Team Cyprus.

Well done Giorgio!
