Two years ago, we took a look at the 2004 Athens Olympics venues, 8 years after the Games, and found most of them to be abandoned and in disrepair.
This summer, 10 years after the Olympic Games, we find that almost nothing has changed. Even though the Games were considered a success back in 2004, there were no plans whatsoever for the future use of most of the sporting facilities. Many of them were never used again in the last 10 years, while others, such as the Athens Olympic Sports Complex, don't receive proper maintenance due to lack of funding.
Meanwhile, just last week the Greek government announced that it has no responsibility for the condition of the Athens Olympic facilities and that most of them will be sold to private investors soon.
