About Apostolos Mavrothalassitis

Paragliding was Apostolos' love and passion for over 20 years. He is a four time champion of Greece, and has participated in various international competitions as a member of the Greek National Team.

His final competition and final paragliding flight was in 2009 at the World Paragliding Championship in Mexico. On the final day of the competition he suffered a mid-air collision with another pilot and as a result was comatose for 12 days. In total, he spent a month and a half in intensive care where he survived against all odds. Following the best part of a year in various hospitals, he was again released to the world as a wheelchair user.

Three years since his accident he obtained the first license in Greece for a pilot with disabilities and on 2013 he became the Greek Champion of Ultralight aircrafts, not in any special category, but with the same rules as the other competiros.

Review by: Panayiotis Kaniamos on Aug. 27, 2010 : (no rating)
Η συγγραφή και έκδοση ενός βιώματος με τόσες παράπλευρες απώλειες με συγκίνησε αγγίζοντας τους φόβους που μόνο σε ένα όνειρο/εφιάλτη συναντά κάνεις.
Θέλει δύναμη να σταθείς γυμνός απέναντι στην πραγματικότητα και να βάλλεις τα γεγονότα με μια σειρά, δημιουργώντας τις βάσεις για την καινούργια ζωή.
Μια τόσο ισχυρή προσωπικότητα όπως του Απόστολου, επιβεβαιώνεται με ένα ισορροπημένο, αξιόλογο και ανθρώπινο κείμενο.
