Athens 1896

Athens 1896

It was at the first IOC Congress in Paris in 1894 that Greece was entrusted with hosting the first Olympic Games of the modern era. Because the site of the Ancient Games, Olympia, was remote and undeveloped, Athens was selected to be the host city.

In 2004 the Olympic Games finally returned home to Greece. History was revisited as the shot put events were held in Olympia, site of the ancient Olympic Games. The archery events were staged in the Panathenaic Stadium that had been used for the 1896 Olympic Games. Both marathons began in the city that gave the event its name and followed the 1896 route, ending in the Panathenaic Stadium.
