Lefteris Petrounias, born on November 30, 1990, is an Olympic gold medalist and world champion in the sport of rings.
With his obvious talents being spotted early on, it was no surprise that even from the age of 10 he had already won medals at the Greek Juniors Championship. On top of these, Lefteris has won more than 20 medals and a hefty total of more than 30 distinctions, not only on a national but on an international level.
He has been nicknamed justifiably as the “Midas of the Rings” and suggests a dominant figure in the sport of rings, especially since the competent body of the World Federation named after him an exercise in the rings, which had been performed by Lefteris Petrounias at the European Championships in Sofia,Bulgaria and assessed with the difficulty rating E (0.50 points).
At the Rio Olympics, Lefteris executed his routine in a unique way in the course of the final of the rings. He earned 16,000 points and consequently rose to the highest step of the podium so as to receive the gold medal. During his second appearance at the Olympics Games, he managed to win the bronze medal at the Tokyo Olympics.
In 2023, Lefteris Petrounias, won the Bronze Medal at the European Championship in Antalya and the Gold Medal at the World Cup of Artistic Gymnastics in Cottbus, Germany. In October of the same year, Lefteris Petrounias won 2nd place in the World Gymnastics Championship and ensured his participation in the Olympic Games in Paris in 2024.
