Athens, Greece Header (2004)

A special welcome to all of our Greek visitors.  



August 13 - 29 The Athens Olympic Committee (ATHOC) has prohibited us from providing you with pictures of any official logos, symbols, mascots, etc. for the 2004 games.   ATHOC claims that by providing these images, we would somehow devalue their symbol and cause a negative financial impact on ATHOC.

Please note that the logo's symbols, etc. for every other Olympic game is present on this web site.  It is ONLY the ATHOC that has raised an objection.

New Sports

LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) - The IOC gave its approval to adding women's wrestling for the 2004 Olympics but told boxing to cut one of its weight divisions and rejected new events in a number of other sports.


We plan on attending the games in Athens in 2004.  Since this will be our first Olympics outside of the USA we are interested in any tips/advice you might have.   

We hope to have enough time to tour the country and meet the people as well as see the games.  If anyone living in or near Athens would like some American visitors, we would love to talk with you!
