    Greece's Olympic champions returned home on Tuesday to a simple welcome by the country's political and sports leaders, and dedicated their medals to the memory of the victims of a ferry shipwreck off the coast of Paros the previous week.

    "We dedicate our medals to the people who were lost in the maritime tragedy off Paros," weightlifter Pyrros Dimas, a gold medalliast in three consecutive Olympics, said as the Greek Olympics team was greeted by the country's political and sports leaders, headed by prime minister Costas Simitis, upon landing at Athens airport from the 2000 Games in Sydney, Australia.

    The athletes brought home a total of 13 medals, which ranked Greece among the top 20 medal-winning countries in the 27th Olympiad.
