The President of the International Olympic Committee, Thomas Bach will inaugurate the IOA renovated premises in Ancient Olympia on October 17 at 16:30.

The event will honour with her presence H.E. the President of the Hellenic Republic, Katerina Sakellaropoulou.

After the renovation, which was taking place for more than one year and a half and was financed by the International Olympic Committee, the IOA will make a big step towards the future, with new functional accommodation rooms, new restaurant, new teaching rooms and new sport facilities.

Moreover, all subterranean and surficial water and sewerage systems were replaced with biological treatment plant; all these with no interventions to the external appearance of the premises which maintained their historical, original appearance.

After 18 months of works, the year that the IOA celebrates its 60th anniversary of life and operation, this unique international educational institution is ready to face new challenges and continue its work in a new era which will make it within the following seven years  completely self-sufficient and more dynamic than ever!
