Paralympic Powerlifting Proudly Sponsored by: Farma of Rhodes

The Early Years

Paschalis Kouloumoglou was born in 1994 in Rhodes and lived in Paradisi until 2000. His journey into the world of sports began at a very young age as himself and his siblings were involved in swimming and other physical activities.

In 2000 his family moved to Thessaloniki, where Paschalis discovered his passion for football and acquired a closer relationship with sports.

In 2007 he becomes familiar with sports for people with disabilities and weightlifting for the first time. The same year he meets coach Dimitris Ioannidis (that remains his coach to this day) who opens an exciting life chapter and a great sports career for Paschalis.
