Yiannis Koutedakis is the Chair of the Sports Science department at the U Thessaly. Definitely your larger than life and very entertaining Greek! Yiannis was also Andreas's advisor during his undergraduate degree, and sent him off to the world for his graduate studies and then brought him back to Trikala. My last week in Greece, we went over to his house for dinner with his family. The food was great and Yiannis provided excellent dinner theatre in the bargain!
Thanks to Yiannis, another reason we truly loved our time in Greece!
