Results Of The 3rd Hellenic Sup Cup 2013, Greece

The 3rd Hellenic SUP CUP (Stand Up Paddle), organized by FORWARD and sponsored by BIC®, was successfully completed. On October 20th, 2013 - 11:30 am, vessel traffic at the Isthmus of Corinth was halted, for the start of the Final race. A race connected to the 120 year anniversary of the Isthmus of Corinth (1893-2013).

Participation reached a record high with over 120 paddlers crossing the Isthmus Canal, (6,343 m length) on their boards, having paddles as their only power. The participation of 26 children was also impressive, showing excessive enthusiasm as they managed to complete the race till the finish line at Posidonia. The 3rd Hellenic SUP CUP held to the impressive backdrop of the Corinth Canal for a third year. Meanwhile this year the competition was stronger, with the participation of 2 International athletes.

BIC® Sport’s athlete, French Champion Eric Terrien, is the winner - 26:26:83, followed at a short distance by the Danish Viking Casper Steinfath - 26:37:81 and with the Greek Champion George Frangos a bit further along, at 28:08:29. The athletes returned to the venue by “Argo” tourist boat, having the chance to admire the 80m cliff and the imposing bridges connecting the Greek mainland with the Peloponnese, without the stress and the pressure of the race.

Aligned with BIC® Corporate Responsibility, the winner Eric Terrien’s board was tendered to support the work of the "Smile of the Child" NGO. The amount raised was 1,893 €, a symbolic number, as the event was dedicated to the 120 years of the Isthmus. BIC® doubled the amount and handed over a check of 3,786 € to the General Secretary of the organization, Mr. Christos Kammilatos. 
The event ended with the award giving ceremony.
