Just a few days before the 9th year of the Navarino Challenge, people of all ages and abilities are preparing to participate and be part of the top celebration of sports tourism in Costa Navarino and Pylos, Messinia, on October 15-17, 2021.
Promoting the global value of the Greek language
The Navarino Challenge promotes and supports actions that highlight the history and cultural heritage of our country and more specifically the undeniable value of the Greek language. The Greek language is one of the most important in the world and has been the basis for countless cultures. Most alphabets come from Greek. This year’s Navarino Challenge campaign has a Greek color and the participants will have the opportunity to see it both in the commemorative T-shirt of the event, which bears the signature of Luanvi, and in the medal which are both dedicated to the Greek language and will include many Greek words in various foreign languages that have exactly the same meaning.
Having decided to promote and highlight the work and life of the great Greek Olympian from Pylos, Konstantinos Tsiklitiras reminds everyone of the importance of the Greek language worldwide on the occasion of the poster of the 1912 Olympic Games in Stockholm which is in Greek. In fact, on Saturday, October 16 at noon, the jumping action will take place in honor of the Tsiklitiras in the presence of Gold Olympian Miltos Tentoglou and his coach, George Pomaski at The Dunes Beach, in Costa Navarino.
