Fans Pour Out For Olympiakos' Hoop Champs

LIA02_afiksi_olympiakou_printezis.jpgAfter beating Madrid, 100-88 in May 12 in London for its second consecutive Euroleague basketball title, the players of Olympiakos returned to a hero’s welcome at Athens International Airport, with their red-clad fans cheering.

About 3,000 followers of the team set an improvised party at the airport, in which Olympiakos’ players participated as well, calling slogans and recording every moment with cameras and cell phones.
“The President is crazy” was the dominant slogan when George and Panayiotis Angelopoulos raised the trophy, while on top of the bus, where the all-star shooting guard Vassilis Spanoulis appeared first.
The party continued at the Peace and Friendship Stadium, the team’s home base, later. Coach Giorgos Bartzokas became the first Greek to lead a team to the title. It was the third  straight year for a Greek title, with Panathinaikos winning in 2011.
