Olympic Velodrome
VENUE FACTFILE
  • Events: Cycling
  • Athletes: 188
  • Spectators: 5,000
  • Schedule: 20-25 August
  • Paralympic event: Cycling (18-22 Sept)

  • The velodrome is part of the Athens Olympic Sports Complex, which houses the main stadium and the tennis centre.

    It has been among the more controversial of the Olympic projects due to the ambitious nature of the structure's glass and steel roof.

    Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava is responsible for the design, as well as that of the much-delayed main stadium.

    And there was huge relief when the velodrome roof was finally put in place at the end of March.

    It will seat 5,000 spectators and host the Olympic and Paralympic track cycling events.
