To the west, close to the banks of the Kladeos
River, is the Gymnasion where athletes were privileged to exercise and
take final training for the Games. Today one can wander in and out of the ruins
of those buildings; and can sit where athletes disrobed oiled and washed
themselves; and walk where they practiced.
Large rectangular building with
central court, enclosed by doric colonnade.
It was training area for practice in foot race, javelin and discus throwing.
A monumental vestibule ("propylon") was added to the SE corner of it at the end
of the 2nd cent.
