International Olympic Academy

Each year, Olympic enthusiasts gather to learn and discuss the important issues of the Olympic Games.

They congregate at the Internatioal Olympic Academy, located at the birthplace of the ancient Olympic Games, in Olympia, Greece. 

There are sessions for Olympians, Young Participants, the Media, Graduates, Masters Students, School Teachers and Olympic Education program managers. 

Participants discuss a range of subjects important to the Olympic Games and share their findings with the International Olympic Committee.
