It is always a great honour for any city to host a mega sporting event. A few days after all of the drama etc. that surrounded the Commonwealth Games of 2010, I happened to pass by the stadium that hosted the Olympics of 1992 in Barcelona.
The Spanish recall the fact that Barcelona lost out to Berlin in the bid to host the games of 1936. And they’re proud of all of the developments in infrastructure etc. that the city has seen since. And proud to have hosted the games in 1992.
I remember watching the games on TV and collecting SPORTSTAR magazines of the time as a kid. I might just still have one or two of them somewhere. South Africa participated in these Olympics for the first time since the 60s, Germany was unified and some of the countries that had been the U.S.S.R and SFR Yugoslavia participated as individual countries for the first time.
I spent about five minutes inside the stadium. It reminded me of the time I’d visited the Olympic Stadium in Montreal, all of twelve years ago!
