Taekwondo fighter Alexandros Nikolaidis led Greece's parade. Nikolaidis is hoping to improve on his silver medal finish in the Beijing Games, reports Xinhua.

The Greek delegation is without triple jumper Voula Papachristou, who was kicked out of the Olympics Wednesday for her Twitter comments mocking African immigrants.
