Greece Olympics Abandoned Venues

August 2

Rust-flecked metal boarding is seen among the seats at the Olympic baseball venue in southern Athens on Thursday, Aug. 2, 2012. The stadium has been used for the past two years by a fourth-division local soccer club. 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.
