Epiphany 2010


On the 06/01the traditional ceremony of Epiphany was held at Kouris dam, after years of drought that prevented the event to take place on the location.

The council of Alassa village and Kouris-Ksilourikos and Nereus clubs collaborated to organize the event. The brave athletes that dared to dive in the icy cold waters of Kouris and try to catch the cross were Michalis Constantinides, Dimitros Papadopoulos, Andreas Christofi, Alex Christoforou and Irene Cacoyiannis. At the end of the ceremony the council of Alassa treated their guests with a “Cypriot-style” breakfast including challoumi and sausages, local wines and “zivania”.

The event ended with Mr. Savvas Savva donating a sum of money to each of the athletes who “dared” to dive in Kouris waters to catch the cross.
