Today the International Olympic Academy visited us, once again under the leadership of Professor Kostas Georgiades.  The student members were on their way to Olympia for the fall semester of the Master’s program in Olympic Studies.  This time there were 28 students from 22 different countries, and they will be at Olympia through the second semester and thus in a position to participate in the 5th Nemead on their way home from their studies in June.  It was a particular pleasure that their program co-ordinator is Evi (Paraskevi) Salepi who ran with us in 2000 and we hope she will be back again next year.

Students from the IOA watch slides in the Society's exhibition room and learn about the revival of the Nemean Games from Professor Stephen Miller.
