Phanos is a Dutch athletics club. Its home stadium is the Olympic stadium in Amsterdam.
The club was founded in 1999-2000. The club was formed in a merger of two clubs, AV Sagitta (founded 1936) and AV Blauw Wit (founded 1917).
The name Phanos, meaning "torch" in Greek, refers to the "Marathon-tower" situated just outside the Olympic stadium, where in 1928 the Olympic fire burned.
The most famous member of Phanos was Fanny Blankers-Koen, even though she was member of AV Sagitta and objected to the merger between Sagitta and Blauw Wit. Other honored athletes from Phanos are Hans Fokkens, Simon ter Laare, Tjerk Vellinga and Wim Visser.
