Giorgos Morfesis , the head coach of the Greek National Team, joins our Expert Jury for the second time.
In 2010, Morfesis made a big entrance into the National Team as a head coach, winning the silver on the European Championships in Zagreb. The next year his success multiplied when Greece went for the gold at the World Championships in Shanghai. Also, there are two bronze medals Morfesis got in the 2010 and 2012 FINA World Leagues.
