Cosmos Sport is now the Νο 1 Greek Company of athletic sportswear. It was established in 1982 by mr. Fragiskos Tsiknakis. A trip to Barcelona was his inspiration that led to the creation of Cosmos Sport. Since 1995 the company’s management has been continued by his three sons, Michalis, Lefteris and Kostas Tsiknakis.
The first store that ever opened was in Hersonissos in Heraklion, Crete.
