Greece Olympics Athens Decay

August 2

Paralympic athlete Paraskevi Katza practices at the Olympic stadium of Athens on Thursday, Aug. 2, 2012. The stadium is one of the very few Olympic venues to have been used for sports after the Athens 2004 Games, hosting soccer matches and athletics. But eight years after the Athens Games, many of the venues remain abandoned or rarely used, focusing public anger on past governments as the country struggles through a fifth year year of recession and a debt crisis that has seen a surge in poverty and unemployment.
