Thirty-six student members of the International Olympic Academy (IOA) from 28 different countries of every continent, led by Kostas Georgiades, Professor and Vice-Chancellor of the University of the Peloponnesos and Emeritus Dean of the IOA, and by Evangelos Albanides, Professor at the Demokritos University of Thrace, visited the offices of the Society for the Revival of the Nemean Games in Ancient Nemea today,  There they had the opportunity to learn in depth from the President of the Society, Stephen Miller, both about the previous four Nemeads in 1996, 2000, 2004, and 2008, as well as about the next Nemead which will take place on June 23, 2012.  The favorable impressions taken away by the members of the IOA, who were also led extensively around the ancient stadium and the archaeological site, leave no doubt that the International Olympia Academy, ambassador of the spirit of the ancient Greek games to the world-wide education community, is adopting enthusiastically the Revival of the Nemean Games and will participate extensively in the 5th Nemead in 2012, as was confirmed to Miller during the visit.
