Olympiacos PIRAEUS completed this past weekend a clean sweep of titles in the latest edition of the Greek national cup, thereby further expanding their already remarkable collection of domestic and international trophies.

In the women’s competition, Olympiacos dispatched Panathinaikos in the semifinal before overcoming AEK in the final in Loutraki, this way lifting the trophy for the 10th time in their history. Olympiacos Czech opposite hitter, Michaela Mlejnkova, was just outstanding in the 3-0 win against AEK, registering a personal tally of 18 points to provide a crucial contribution to the victory that gave Olympiacos the first title of the current season.

In the men’s competition held in Larissa, Olympiacos lifted the cup for the first time since 2017, defeating AONS Milon in a thrilling final lasting for five sets to celebrate their 17th title.

Mitar Tzourits secured the Most Valuable Player (MVP) award as he kept Olympiacos alive against Milon – the outsiders came close to pulling off a major upset – by scoring 20 points and managing as many as seven blocks on his own.
