    [02] Search continues for 3 missing crewmen of capsized Turkish freighter

    AMNA--A search operation was continuing on Sunday for three missing crewmen of a Turkish cargo boat that capsized on Saturday morning in the sea between the port of Kyllini and the island of Zakynthos.

    The Turkish-flag "M/V Erol Senkaya", with a crew of 10 Turkish nationals, capsized as it was sailing from Zakynthos to Turkey with a cargo of 2,200 tons of olive pellets, and later sank partially, according to the Greek Coast Guard.

    Six crew members were rescued by Greek Coast Guard vessels and other boats sailing nearby, while the body of a 7th crew member, the ship's captain, was recovered by frogmen on Saturday afternoon from the deck of the half-sunken ship.

    The cause of the accident is as yet unknown, but Greek Coast Guard officials believe it was caused by a shifting of the cargo.

    The six rescued seamen were taken to the Zakynthos Health Center for precautionary reasons.

    The search operation was hampered on Sunday by strong rippling of the water that was dragging the capsized vessel, posing the threat of the capsized boat sinking abruptly and dragging rescuers with it.

    The vessel's chief officer (first mate), a seaman and an oiler are still missing.

    [03] 'Take a breath and join us...', 1st Acropolis Half Marathon

    AMNA--Greece's Dimitrios Tsiounis took first place in the 1st Acropolis Half Marathon held in the Greek capital on Sunday, completing the 21,100-meter course in one hour, 14 minutes and 17 seconds (1:14:17).

    The Organization of Culture, Sports and Youth of the City of Athens and the Hellenic Association of Amateur Athletics (SEGAS), the organizers of the event, aim to establish the "Athens Run" as an annual event and one of the most important sports institutions in Greece with wide popular participation, as well as to promote the city of Athens abroad.

    All races set off from the gates of the ancient Panathenian Stadium (Kallimarmaro) and finished at the historic building of the Zappeion Mansion.

    All runners finishing the events, who were electronically timed, will receive a Special Medal and Certificate of Participation. More specifically, medals and certificates are awarded to the first three winners of the "Acropolis" Half Marathon and the 8 kilometer run for both men and women. In all races a cup will be awarded to the first winner, while all the runners who finish will be presented with a symbolic certificate and medal. Other special awards will be given to the first winners and to the biggest in number group participation of a School, Association, Union, etc.
