His elder brother, Xenophon, had won gold on Sunday in the 120kg category. Greece captured another gold yesterday as swimmer Aristidis Gregoriadis took his second at these Games, in the 200-meter backstroke in a new Greek record, taking the country’s tally to three. Two more swimming medals also came yesterday, with Spyros Gianniotis winning silver in the 1,500-meter freestyle and Zoe Dimoschaki earning bronze in the 200-meter free.
