As part of the preparations for the 2004 Olympic Games, an international tournament, the "Athens Judo Open 2004", which will resemble the Olympic Games format, will be staged by the Athens Organising Committee for the Olympic Games (ATHOC). It will be held between 16 and 18 January at the Ano Liossia Olympic Hall (LIH), which is the venue for the judo events during the Athens 2004 Olympic Games.
The tournament will provide a unique opportunity for the athletes to become familiar with Athens and the Olympic judo venue. The competitions will be held in three men's (under 66 kg, under 81 kg and under 100 kg) and three women's categories (under 52 kg, under 63 kg and under 78 kg).
