The Greek national men’s polo team won a silver medal at the Olympic Games of Tokyo on Sunday.
In its final game, it aimed for gold but was defeated by the Serbian national team 13-10.
This is the first time the Greek men’s polo team wins a medal, and the second time Greece achieves a medal in a group sport. The first one was in the Athens Olympic Games (2004), when the national women’s polo team won silver.
The 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games were cancelled last year due to the coronavirus pandemic and took place this year without spectators.
