The Olympic Stadium, Barcelona – It has quite a history Acutally I do have a bit of a mission, and that is each time I have been in a city that has hosted the Olympics I try and check out the stadium. So far I have managed Helsinki, London, Montreal, Beijing and Sarajevo so even with Barcelona there is still quite a few to go.
