She was the most successful Greek triple jumper and Greek record holder until 1998, when she won the gold medal at the European Championships in Budapest, being at the time just the second female Greek athlete to be crowned European Champion after Anna Verouli in 1982. The following year she won the bronze medal at the World Championships in Seville behind Paraskevi Tsiamita and Yamile Aldama. She is the younger sister of long jumper Spyridon Vasdekis.
