I have come to read website about Olympics that say that two were members of the boat crew that won the gold medal at the Olympic Games in Rome, Odysseus Eskidioglou and George Zaimis and exclude Constantine, when the crew of Dragon class is 3 people.

When were the Olympics in Athens in 2004, Constantine was not as Olympic medalist for Greece.

I think that his emotional answer to this phrase : "what they do not know the Greeks is the great effort that the athletes make to win a medal representing to their country, and how sad it is that the authorities do not recognize the merit or effort". Who knows if this had been his words if the tears and the effort to contain it, would not have prevented it.

However it is a recognition, he was thereHe won the gold medal representing Greece and that is evidence, now the authorities recognize it .

Queen Anne-Marie is who takes care of the King, I read this in an interview in March, she is Queen, wife and nurse. God save the King's health, I think he needs it
So if I understand this correctly the government or Greek Olympic Committee is refusing to recognize an Olympic Gold Medalist because he is the former monarch? AFAIK King Constantine did not cheat or do anything to have the IOC remove his medal, so IMHO it's wrong for the nation to not acknowledge his efforts and gold medal.

Sorry for my words, I think caused a confusion. The International Olympic Committee is independent to the states, King Constantine is Olympic medalist in the Olympics in Rome, he is an honorary member of the olympic Committee, and this on the official website of the Olympic Committee. The Greek Olympic Committee has had excellent relations with King Constantine, it has always been. They were invited and attended the wedding of Princess Alexia and Prince Paul. Greek Olympic Committee has recognized the medal of King Constantine, King is invited and presides all the acts of the Greek Olympic Committee. I speak of the attitude of some Greek politicians, they are not competent to remove the King of his medal, the King has always had and has his medal, I talk about the attitude of some political and journalists, they avoid saying that King won a medal, a denial of history. However this has now changed , they greet him, speak with him, now the political attitude has changed. In this event there were many Greek politicians, was the president of the Republic, and ministers of the current government, they applauded and the event was broadcast by tv.

This morning I was scared when I read this news in a Greek tabloid , however I have called to a person who knows the King of Greece, and he told me that this was impossible, that this could not be true, it is not true.... and he reassured me a lot. I have realized that it could not be true, because the dates that the newspaper is pointing out do not correspond, I mean, the Queen Anna Maria was at the event celebrated by Marina Karella, the next day she was at a meal with Nikolaos and Tatiana, Prince Pavlos, he continued his normal life, celebrated Thanksgiving in Great Britain, and yesterday he published a photo Of his son in the school .

I dont like that the press playing with this news

Constantine was in the hospital recently
"He has just been admitted to a private hospital in Athens for a number of studies.
King's communications office assures However, in a press release that the hospital was quite undramatic, and King Constantine back home and fine.

It is also the reason why Queen Anne-Marie could easily travel to Denmark shortly after to visit her sister Queen Margrethe says King Constantine's communications director, mrs. Aliki Strongylos"

In serious, the news of the greek tabloids is unrealistic, I explain it:

The tabloids do not say the name of the hospital, they do not speak the medical report, they do not speak of which doctors have diagnosed it. But the description of the article is very ridiculous, unlikely...., because it speaks of a person who enters with a stroke problem in hospital(21/11), very serious,..and after it says, that he has been send to his home to that he recuperates there(24/11). No doctor sends a person with these symptoms to his house, is ridiculous, this explains why they have avoided putting the name of the hospital and the doctor..and Constantino does not lives in athens, lives in Porto Heli, and is not 71 years old, he is 76 years old ..
In addition, Queen Anna Maria, Prince Nikolaos and Princess Irene were on November 23rd at the gala of the foundation to raise funds for children victims of mistreatment with Prince Michael and Marina Karella, in Athens

On the 27th, Sunday, the King and Queen went to Mass and afterwards they went to navigate their boat, a ride on the Afroessa,in Porto Heli, several people have spoken with them, when they were getting into their vehicle.

Τhe Danish town Hellerup traveled kings Constantinos and Anna-Maria to attend the event, organized by the Hellerup Sailing Club, in memory of the legendary Danish sailor Paul Elvstrom, who died on 07 December 2016 at the age of 88 years.

The then Crown Prince Constantinos first met with Paul Elvstrom during the Olympic Games in Rome in 1960 and trained hard under the guidance of the Danish sailor, managing as helmsman of the boat "NIREUS 'with Odysseus Eskitzoglou crew and George Zaimi, to offer to Greece's first Olympic Gold Medal winning the Dragon class sailing in the Bay of Naples in Italy.

Since then he had developed a close friendship between the two men and trained together until the early 1990s.

The king looks so frail, it's painful to watch ...
