Greece has risen to prominence in a number of sporting areas in recent decades. Football in particular has seen a rapid transformation, with the Greek national football team winning the 2004 UEFA European Football Championship. Many Greek athletes have also achieved significant success and over the years won world titles and Olympic medals in numerous sports, such as basketball, water polo, wrestling, athletics, and weightlifting. Greek athletes have won a total 146 medals for Greece in 15 different Olympic sports at the Summer Olympic Games, an achievement which places Greece among the top nations globally, in the world’s rankings of medals per capita.
