Greek athlete Stefanos Ntouskos won the gold medal at men’s single sculls in rowing at the Tokyo Olympics.

Ntouskos had also competed at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, in the men’s lightweight coxless four, finishing in the sixth place.

Ntouskos pulled off a breathtaking Olympic stunner, setting a new record at the Games with his time of 6:40.45. Norway’s Kjetil Borch finished one second after Ntouskos to take the silver medal, and Croatia’s Martin Damir trailed Borch for the bronze.

Ntouskos pulled ahead during the third quarter of the race and sustained his pace for a glorious 250-meter-run that ended in his smashing of the Olympic men’s single sculls record.

This is the 24-year-old competitive rower’s first medal at the Olympic Games and it is Greece’s first medal of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
