This past weekend, the National Athletics Stadium in Nicosia was bustling with excitement during the annual Matseia Athletics Competition. This prestigious event, which showcases top athletic talent in the Senior Men and Women categories, saw two of our elite athletes from GSP deliver outstanding performances.

The competition, held on June 1st and 2nd, 2024, attracted athletes from across Cyprus, each aiming to test their mettle against the best in the country. Our athletes, Andrea Georgiou and Evangelos Petasis, represented our school with distinction and competitive spirit.

Athlete Performance:

Andrea Georgiou:

  • 400m Race: Andrea competed fiercely in the 400m race, securing a commendable 5th place. Her performance was marked by her exceptional stamina and speed.
  • 4x400m Relay: The highlight of her participation was the 4x400m relay, where she played a crucial role in leading the GSP Relay Team to a 1st place victory. This win is a testament to the teamwork and dedication of our athletes.

Evangelos Petasis:
  • 100m Dash: Evangelos kicked off the competition with the 100m dash on the first day, finishing in 5th place with a strong display of speed and agility.
  • 200m Sprint: On the second day, he competed in the 200m sprint and not only achieved 3rd place but also set a new personal best time of 21.73 seconds. This outstanding achievement has qualified him for the U-18 European Championship later this year, marking him as a rising star in athletics.
We are immensely proud of both Andrea and Evangelos for their achievements at the Matseia Athletics Competition. Their hard work, determination, and sportsmanship have brought honor to GSP and set a high standard for their fellow athletes.
