The IOC Executive Board meeting at the end of March accepted in principle the plan to upgrade the Academy’s infrastructure in Ancient Olympia. This project which shall change the IOA entirely, as it shall also be accompanied by innovations in the Academy’s educational actions, chiefly expressed by the IOC itself, as proposed in 2016 by IOA President, Isidoros Kouvelos, will be implemented immediately. For this reason on April 1 and 2, Messrs. Francis Gabet and Panos Tzivanidis visited the facilities, on behalf of the IOC, to ascertain the requirements of the radical change planned for the space.
