2004 Summer Olympics

See also: 2004 Summer Paralympics[?]
The Games of XXVIII Olympiad will be held in Athens, Greece from August 13 to August 29. Greece was chosen as the host city in 1997, after surprisingly having lost the bid to organise the 1996 Summer Olympics, the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the modern Olympic Games. In 1997, they had a bid that was not only founded on their tradition, and they defeated Rome in the last round of voting, after Buenos Aires, Stockholm, Cape Town and San Juan had already received too few votes.

Since then, the IOC has expressed its concern over the status of the progress of construction work of the new Olympic venues.
