The 4th successive International Session for Olympic Medallists or Olympians that took place from 2 to 9 July 2018 in Ancient Olympia has established an additional link in the effort to incorporate the new special theme session into the IOA educational programme launched in 2007, to attract the international community of Olympians to the cradle of Olympism, Ancient Olympia.
