Ethnikos Gymnastikos Syllogos or Ethnikos Athens is one of the oldest multi-sports clubs in Greece. It was founded in 1893.

History[edit]

1896 Olympics[edit]

It had a team of gymnasts competing at the 1896 Summer Olympics in Athens.

The team's leader was Ioannis Chrysafis. Members included Ioannis Mitropoulos, Dimitrios Loundras, Filippos Karvelas, and 15 others whose names are unknown.

The team placed third of the three teams in the parallel bars team event, earning a bronze medal (retroactively awarded by the International Olympic Committee, as the awards at the first Olympic Games differed from the gold, silver, bronze format used later).
