Following the sport events successfully organised in August 2003, the Athens Organising Committee (ATHOC) is planning to hold 34 more sports events by the end of June 2004. All these events will allow ATHOC to test the sites, infrastructure, competition management and technology.
Triathlon World Cup
The first competition of the second cluster of sports events will be the upcoming Triathlon World Cup, which will be held on 25 October at the Vouliagmeni Olympic Centre. The starting signal for the marathon race will be given on 2 November. Other sports events (weightlifting, modern pentathlon, judo, wrestling and table tennis) are scheduled during this second cluster, which lasts until the end of January 2004.
The third cluster - from February to April 2004 - includes final planning, full-scale team operations and 22 sports events. The fourth cluster - from May to June 2004 - includes delivery of venues and the final preparation of the venue teams.
