Athens 2004 Olympic Games were considered successful at that time. The Greek organsizers invested about 9 billion Euros (11 billion US dollars), although the exact cost of the Games has not been determined. Most of the sports facilities were built exclusively for the Olympics without any predifined plans for their future use.
As a result, many of those facilities have been hardly ever used after the Games ended. Even in sites that are still in use, for example the Athens Olympics Sports Complex (OAKA), many parts have been left without adequeate maintenance.
