ΧΡΥΣΟ για την Ελλάδα μας σήμερα!!! Ο εθνικός μας ύμνος ήχησε νωρίτερα εδώ στη Λευκορωσία και δεν θα μπορούσα να νιώσω πιο ευτυχισμένη και πλήρης. Η συγκίνησή μου μάλιστα είναι διπλή, διότι επιστρέφοντας στην Ελλάδα, ολοκληρώνεται η κατασκευή του σκοπευτηρίου των 25 μέτρων, έργο του κ. Άρη Θεοδωρίδη, στον οποίο θέλω να αφιερώσω την αποψινή μου νίκη και την παντοτινή μου ευγνωμοσύνη για την ανιδιοτελή του προσφορά. Σας ευχαριστώ όλους από τα βάθη της καρδιάς μου για τα γλυκήτατα μηνύματά σας, θα προσπαθήσω να απαντήσω σε όλα! Με πολλή αγάπη, Άννα #goldmedal #victory #nowords #brightyear #brightyou #europeangames #minsk2019 #HellenicOlympic #doublemedalist #roadtotokyo #souroti #alphabank #stoiximangr #iroesgr #GreatInJapan 📸 copyrights: @angeloszymaras
