  • [01] Children celebrate 1st birthday of Athens 2004 Olympics

    More than 150 children celebrated the opening of the Athens Olympics a year ago, blowing out a candle on a festive birthday-cake and enjoying gifts and games in the event's luxury stadium.

    "These stadium open-days will be held next year with children from all schools, not only in Attica, that enjoy athletics and Olympic sports. Celebration of the Olympics will continue," Deputy Culture Minister Fani Palli-Petralia told the children invited from summer camps.

    She noted that the government had worked to repair and maintain sport facilities used in the games, and was proceding well with a plan to employ them for public and private use in the future.

    "This was a dream Olympics we held, in which the sole sponsor was the Greek, taxpaying public, which is why it is time for citizens to reap the benefit. Our approach is people-centred," Palli-Petralia said.
