The International Olympic Academy invited and hosted the athletes of the Greek team that participated in the Youth Olympic Games of Nanjing 2014 together with their parents and some of their coaches at its installations in Ancient Olympia from the 19th to the 21st of September.

Both the Undersecretary for Sports, Mr Yiannis Andrianos, and the IOA President, Mr Isidoros Kouvelos, honored with their presence the visit. The athletes and their relatives enjoyed themselves and relaxed during the three-day stay. The IOA Ephoria has decided, trying to reinforce the efforts of the Greek athletes who participate in great sport events abroad, to host them free of charge at its facilities in Ancient Olympia.
