Antria Christoforou, a new member of the Cypriot team in the upcoming Olympics, serves as an outstanding example of a rising athlete and champion, combining authentic athletic talent, personality, ethos and determination. Taking into account her involvement and contribution to sports and society as a whole, Antria Christoforou is an important role model and a source of inspiration for children and adolescents.

In the framework of the activities for promoting the operation of the 1480 helpline and hotline, Antria Christoforou stars in the TV spot "Enjoy your online routes safely", which was presented to children, parents and teachers for the first time on this year's Safer Internet Day, on Tuesday, 6 February 2018. The TV spot is being shown on all Cypriot television channels, and emphasises the need for safe and responsible use of the internet. The spot also presents the 1480 helpline and hotline services, which aim to provide parents, children and teachers with a place where they can call anonymously and free of charge to receive support and advice about the internet.
