The bronze Discus Thrower statue is just opposite from Panathinaiko Stadium (see previous post) and was erected in 1927. One replica of this statue was installed in Paris during the 1924 Olympic Games. Later it was transferred in New York City's Central Park and later in Randalls Island park. That statue was vandalized and needed restoration (see photos). This one is doing just fine (except from the rust).
