Paraskevi Kalogirou wins bronze medal at World Championships 2023


The Greek taekwondo star, Paraskevi Kalogirou, took to the podium for the World Taekwondo Cadet Championship 2023 for boys and girls that opened in Sarajevo. Greece celebrated the bronze medal win, with Kalogirou as the protagonist in the under 45kg category.

The Greek champion, in her second time participating in the Girls’ World Championship, reached third place, in a category where a total of 25 athletes participated. In the match, Kalogirou defeated Egypt’s Noeman 2-0, while she qualified for the quarterfinals after defeating Li-Diep from Australia by the same score.

In the match against Azamatkizi from Kazakhstan, she was impressive, after gaining the victory (with a two-point shot) with 1.83 seconds left in the third period (2-1). In the semi-finals against Italian Lambis, Kalogirou won the first round, but did not do as well in the next two, resulting in a 2-1 score to take 3rd place, giving Greece its 5th medal in the World Cadet Championships.

Last year, Greece collected a total of four medals, one silver and three bronze.
