Panellinios G.S. (Greek: Πανελλήνιος Γ.Σ.), full name, Panellinios Gymnastikos Syllogos (Greek: Πανελλήνιος Γυμναστικός Σύλλογος), is a Greek multi-sport club that is located in Athens and was founded in 1891. It is one of the oldest and more successful multi-sports clubs in Greece and also one of the oldest sports clubs in Europe.[1][2]

The name Panellinios can be translated as Pan-Hellenic in English, and can be interpreted to mean the Greek Nation. Gymnastikos Syllogos can be translated as gymnastics club. Therefore, the club's full name can be translated and/or interpreted as Pan-Hellenic Gymnastics Club.

The Greek multi-sports club Panathinaikos A.O. was founded by Giorgos Kalafatis in 1908, when he and 40 other athletes decided to break away from Panellinios Gymnastikos Syllogos, following the club's decision to discontinue its football team.

Men's athletics[edit]

The club had a team of gymnasts compete at the 1896 Summer Olympics in Athens. The team’s leader was Sotirios Athanasopoulos. Members included Nikolaos Andriakopoulos, Petros Persakis, Thomas Xenakis, and 29 others. The team placed second of the three teams in the parallel bars team event, earning a silver medal (retroactively awarded by the International Olympic Committee, as the awards at the first Olympic Games differed from the gold, silver, bronze format used later).

Men's basketball[edit]

Panellinios B.C. was founded in 1929 and has been the Greek League champion six times in the years 1929, 1939, 1940, 1953, 1955, and 1957. In the early 1950s era the team was called "The Golden Five", referring to players Panagiotis Manias, Themis Cholevas, Kostas Papadimas, Mimis Stefanidis, and Aristeidis Roubanis. They dominated not only Greek basketball, but European basketball in general.

The Panellinios team headlined the 1952 Greek Olympic Team. During the mid-to-late 1950s, the team was led by Antonis Christeas.
