    By Ilias Papaioannou

    Greek Tae Kwon Do Gold Olympian Michalis Mouroutsos paved the way for other Greek medals to follow in the 23rd Universiade in Smyrne, after claiming the bronze medal last night. The Sydney triumphant was defeated in the 67Kg semifinal by South-Korean Mum Kyu Lee and was thus proclaimed bronze medallist.

    Positive Test in view of European Championship

    With his performance competing in a new category (67Kg), for which he had to put on weight, the Greek champion was more than promising for a distinction in the upcoming European Championship. "These games were a very good test for this new category in which I am competing. I proved I am good and truly believe I will do much better in the future. The Universiade is a perfect opportunity before the European championship in October. I hope the new administration of the Greek federation will properly assess my work and include me in the team, so that I can compete in the European championship," ended Michalis Mouroutsos.
