The Digital Exhibition of the Hellenic Olympic Committee has been inaugurated

International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach opened the Digital Exhibition at the entrance to the EEE building in Halandri at noon on Monday. The Digital Exhibition presents all modern Greek Olympians as well as moments from the Olympic Flame which is one of the most powerful symbols of Olympicism.

IOC President and IOC member Spyros Kapralos welcomed President Thomas Bach to the headquarters of the Hellenic Olympic Committee, stressing: We thank President Bach for his first trip since his re-election to the IOC presidency in Greece, which is a great honour for the country. The President of the International Olympic Committee has proven over the years and in many ways that Greece has a special place in his heart. I would also like to congratulate President Bach on his re-election and I am sure that all IOC members will continue the excellent work done with Agenda 2020 and Agenda 2020+5. It is an important day for us, as after the amendment of our statutes, the Greek Olympians will elect today their representative to the General Assembly of the EEE. The digital exhibition we launched today is a small tribute to those who have honoured our country since 1986 at the Olympic Games.
We also present two of the most powerful Olympic symbols, the Olympic Flame and the Olympic Flag promoting the values of Olympicism."

President Thomas Bach said: "It is a great pleasure to be in Athens for many reasons, beyond the friendship that binds us. The new statutes of the EEE and the elections that are currently being held to the athletes for representation in plenary, the new lighting at the Panathinaikos Stadium and this digital exhibition linking the present with the future reflect the content of Agenda 2020. Digitisation, sustainability with actions such as the new lighting of the Panathinaikos Stadium and the athletes at the heart of the Olympic movement are what we want to implement in Agenda 2020+5. Greece today has a triple lead, as in addition to the first country to enter the stage at the Opening Ceremony at the Olympics, it is the first country I visit since my re-election and is the first country to receive the Olympic Trophy, the IOC award depicting the Olympic House in Lausanne." The President of the IOC then handed Mr Spyros Kapralos the Olympic Trophy! At the event that took place with strict adherence to all health protocols and minimal presence of individuals, also attended by the members of the Executive Board of the EEE, Stelios Angeloudis, Xenia Argitakis, Antonis Nikolopoulos, the President of the International Olympic Academy Isidoros Kouvelos, the Secretary General of the World Fencing Federation Manolis Katsiadakis, the honorary member of the IOC Lambis Nikolaou, the President of the Association of Olympic Games Participates Voula Kozomol , the President of the Greek Olympians Evi Moraitidou and the CEO of Olympic Broadcasting Services (OBS) Giannis Exarchos.
