Metaxas is best known for being the architect chosen by George Averoff to restore the Panathinaiko Stadium for the 1896 Summer Olympics in Athens, the birth of the modern Olympic movement, while the design was from Ernst Ziller. He also competed at those Games, entering the military and free rifle events. He placed fourth in both competitions, with scores of 1,701 in the military rifle event and 1,102 in the free rifle contest.
