2004 Olympic Games, Athens

Date: 13th August – 29th August 2004


In 2004 the Olympic Games returned to Greece, the home of both the ancient and the first modern Olympic Games. For the first time a record 201 National Olympic Committees (NOCs) participated in the Olympic Games and the popularity of the Games soared to new heights as 3.9 billion people had access to the television coverage compared to 3.6 billion for Sydney 2000. The equestrian facilities at Markopoulo were extraordinary. Two stadiums were built, one housing a grass arena for Jumping and one with an all-weather arena for Dressage, offering a total of 20,000 seats. In addition there was a 20x60m covered arena, a 500m racetrack and eight training areas.
