At the SNFCC, Mr. Coe was welcomed by the members of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF), George Agouridis and Asimina Koutroumpousi, and the SNFCC Board of Directors and was offered a guided tour to the premises of the SNFCC complex. Mr. Coe was accompanied by ΙΑΑF Senior Manager of Communications, Mr. Giannis Nikolaou.

During the tour, particular attention was given to the Spyros Louis’ Cup which is being exhibited at the SNFCC. The historic item was acquired by the SNF at an international auction. As soon as the Cup was acquired, SNF committed to making it accessible to the public, keeping it permanently on display at the SNFCC. Until then, over 3.5 million visitors had already admired the Cup when it was displayed at the Acropolis Museum in Athens and at the Olympic Museum in Lausanne.
