If you happen to be taking a relaxing Sunday stroll in Piraeus next week you might just bump into arguably the world “king” of the long jump, Miltos Tentoglou.

The recently crowned European outdoor champion in Rome, with a championship record no less, is expected to take part in the 2nd annual Piraeus Street Long Jump event to be held in front of the Piraeus Municipal Theater on June 23.

The event is scheduled to start at 6.10 pm and will also welcome a host of other world-class long jumpers like Sweden’s Thobias Montler and Cuba’s Juan Miguel Echevarría.

The 2nd Piraeus Street Long Jump is organized in the framework of the World Athletics Continental Tour, in the Silver category, for men’s and women’s long jump.

The novel event is jointly organized by the Municipality of Piraeus and the Hellenic Athletics Federation (SEGAS), under the auspices of the World Athletics Continental Tour.

It is worth noting that 168 years ago, the first “informal” Olympic Games in modern history took place on the streets of Piraeus.

The public will be able to enjoy the sports spectacle from the 600-seat capacity theatre located in the centermost place of Greece’s largest port city.

At only 26, Miltos Tentoglou is already considered one of the greatest long jumpers of all time, having won first place in all major World and European championships, with a total of 11 gold medals.

The event will be broadcast by Athens-based TV station Mega Channel.
