Nikaia Olympic Weightlifting Hall

The Nikaia Olympic Weightlifting Hall is an indoor arena in Nikaia, near Piraeus. It hosted the weightlifting events at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Greece.[1] The venue was officially opened on August 14, 2004, the day after the beginning of the Games. The building had a capacity of 5,100, though only 3,500 seats are publicly available for the games.[2]

After the 2004 Olympics, the facility has hosted fencing competitions,[3] but has recently been turned over to the University of Piraeus for use as an academic lecture and conference center.[4][5]
