#BIRTHDAY: Lia Vissi from Cyprus is 66 today
Sisters. Sisters. Never were there such devoted sisters. You know the rest. But sisters have been know to be drawn to our favourite TV show. Whether they perform as equals. Or one with a higher billing then the other. Or even in different contests.
Today’s birthday girl Olympia “Lia” Vissi has a sister arguably of higher renown, but she’s still done her stuff, which is more than most. Cypriots can say. Lia was in the scientifically-proven best contest ever, so a good result was always going to be like walking through custard in flippers. She did get the first point of the 1985 contest. And then she got 14 more. What might surprise most is she scored eight from Greece. Shock horror. However Cyprus did give eight to Greece in return, so it all worked out nicely in the end. But who is that sister? You’ve probably worked it out by now.
