The Trojan War was the greatest conflict in the Greek mythology, a war that was to influences people in literature and arts for centuries.

The war was fought between the Greeks and Trojans with their allies, upon a Phrygian city of Troy (Ilium), on Asia Minor (modern Turkey). The war lasted for ten years and it has been traditionally dated from 1194 to 1184 BC.

greeks coudnt enter troy.. so the devised the folowing plan

Still seeking to gain entrance into Troy, clever Odysseus (some say with the aid of Athena) ordered a large wooden horse to be built. Its insides were to be hollow so that soldiers could hide within it.

Once the statue had been built by the artist Epeius, a number of the Greek warriors, along with Odysseus, climbed inside. The rest of the Greek fleet sailed away, so as to deceive the Trojans.

One man, Sinon, was left behind. When the Trojans came to marvel at the huge creation, Sinon pretended to be angry with the Greeks, stating that they had deserted him. He assured the Trojans that the wooden horse was safe and would bring luck to the Trojans.

Only two people, Laocoon and Cassandra, spoke out against the horse, but they were ignored. The Trojans celebrated what they thought was their victory, and dragged the wooden horse into Troy.

That night, after most of Troy was asleep or in a drunken stupor, Sinon let the Greek warriors out from the horse, and they slaughtered the Trojans

this is where the sayings "trojan horse" and "beware of greeks bearing gifts" comes from

als this is where achilies was defetaed.
and odyseus story of the odeyse began

Greece national basketball team

The Greece national basketball team for men is the basketball side that represents Greece in international competitions. Greece is generally considered an important power in international basketball and the national team is regarded as one of the best in the world, having won the European Championship twice and having reached the final four in three of the last four FIBA World Championships (1994, 1998, 2006). In addition to this, Greece have won the Youth World Championship in 1995. They are the reigning European Champions and the silver medalists in the World Championship.

The national team is organized and run by the Hellenic Basketball Federation. Basketball became extremely popular in Greece after the achıevements of the Greek national team ın 1987, when they won the gold medal and the first international title for a Greek national team ever.

Eurobasket 2005
During Eurobasket 2005, Greece advanced from the group phase in second place, with two victories and one defeat and then beat Israel 67-61 in an elimination game to reach the quarter-finals. There they faced Russia, beating them 66-61. In the semifinals, Greece beat France 67-66 in a dramatic fashion. France led by 7 with 1 minute to go, but Greece managed to come back and win the game with a last second three-pointer by Dimitris Diamantidis from the top of the key. In the Final, Greece beat Germany 78-62, and were crowned European Champions for the second time.

2006 FIBA World Championship
Greece began play in arguably the toughest group, group C. Nevertheless, with five close wins, they advanced undefeated from the group phase in first place, and then beat China 95-64 in an elimination game to reach the quarter-finals. There they faced France, beating them 73-56. In the semifinals, Greece faced the United States, which was considered the undisputed favorite to win gold. In the greatest upset of the tournament, the Greek team defeated the United States 101-95 rallying back from 12 points down. In the Final, Greece uncharacteristically underperformed and lost in a landslide to Spain 70-47, ending up with the silver medal. Despite losing, the players were greeted as heroes by celebrating fans on their return to Greece.
