Acropolis Meet Delayed by Hotel Bomb Threats
May 10, 1999
A series of bomb threats interrurpted several swim teams staying at the 'President' Hotel in Athens, during the recent Acropolis International Swim Meet. There have been several terrorist bombings recently at foreign Banks in Athens, so the threat was taken seriously.
As a result of the bomb threat and the subsequent evacuation of the hotel the teams staying at the hotel were delayed in getting back to the final sessions at the pool and the finals were delayed by an hour.
