    414日,迪米特里·基里亚基德斯(Dimitri Kyriakides)携手他的夫人吉雅(她将参加418日举办的波士顿马拉松)共同出席了此次典礼。典礼上基里亚基德斯移交了马拉松冠军“黄金花环”,并获得了马拉松的故乡希腊所颁发的奖项。迪米特里的父亲斯迪利安诺斯(Stylianos)在1946年的波士顿马拉松比赛中击败了自己的好友乔尼·凯利(Johnny “The Elder” Kelly)夺冠,而他则是环球旅行来选拔马拉松选手。

一同出席此次典礼的还有波比·吉布(Ms. Bobbi Gibb)女士。出生于1966年的吉布是首位参加波士顿马拉松的女性(由于当时官方不允许女性参赛,所以吉布是非官方地跑完了全程),她已经被选为了今年波士顿马拉松的领跑人。

在手另一侧的则是比格的国际顾问吉姆·尼尔森(Jim Nelson),他与(Kyriakides)相识于2004年的雅典奥运会,并从那时起成为了挚友。


On April 14th a special ceremony was held for the handing over of the gold wreathes by Mr. Dimitri Kyriakides, who with his lovely wife Kea (who will be running in the Boston Marathon on April 18th) brought the coveted awards from the marathon’s homeland Greece. Mr. Kyriakides, whose father Stylianos won the 1946 Boston Marathon in upset fashion over the famous Johnny “The Elder” Kelly, travels the world supplying gold wreathes to select marathons.

Joining in the ceremony was Ms. Bobbi Gibb who in 1966 became the first woman to run (unofficially as women could not register officially) the Boston Marathon and has been selected as the Grand Marshall of this year’s Boston Marathon.

On hand for the proceedings was BIG international consultant Jim Nelson, who first met Mr. Kyriakides at the 2004 Athens Olympics and have been friends ever since.
