Lefteris is an ex-member, as well as champion, of the National Swimming Team. He's been playing water polo for the last 30 years, currently for Niki Volou. He took part in a triathlon competition for the first time in 2011, participating in the Ironman competition. He followed that with his participation in other competitions, such as Celtman and Ultraman, as well as various local triathlon and open sea swimming competitions.

It is worth pointing out that Lefteris' goal is to use sport in order to promote and gather funds for various charities. You can view a list of the causes he has supported, here: http://www.lefterisparaskevas.com/#our-work

In the spring of 2015, Lefteris embarked on his largest charity campaing so far, "The Extra Mile": The Extra Mile includes four major athletic tests, culminating with Lefteris' participation in the world's most extreme triathlon competition, Enduroman “Arch-to-Arc”. In July 2015, Lefteris will cover a distance of 473.5 kms, running, swimming and on bicycle, from London's Marble Arch to Paris' Arc de Triomphe. Only 18 athletes have ever completed this challenge. Lefteris aims not only to complete it but also to break the world record of 61 hours and 27 minutes! Lefteris will try to move beyond his physical and psychological boundaries, sending the message to everyone that they can also do the same -at least as far as the participation to charuty causes is concerned.
