Two Greeks, Pavlos and Filippos Nanos, won the first prize in the Fireworks Show of Cincinnati, USA.
“It is a great pleasure and honour that we won an international distinction in the art that we love” Pavlos Nanos said in statements to the Athens-Macedonian News Agency.
“Some Greeks came from Ohio to congratulate us personally and meet us after our victory. Children and elderly people who have not visited Greece for 45 years!” he added.
More than 20,000 people attended the event. Every country participated with an eight-minute show. The Greek participants had to compete with the Philippines, which was the winner of the 2013 World Competition in Germany and South Africa which has won 7 international awards.
