PODCAST: 1992 Olympics - the event that changed Barcelona forever
Catalan capital marks 30th anniversary of Games that fostered large-scale urban renewal and put the city on the map
The 1992 Summer Olympic Games are the sporting event that put Barcelona on the world map and changed the city forever.
Alejandra Angulo, Cillian Shields, and Guifre Jordan take a nostalgic look back at the sporting memories, the opening and closing ceremonies, and the architectural legacy of the epic Summer Olympics of 1992, in the month of its 30th anniversary.
Our journey through the Olympics starts with a banger, the 'Barcelona' anthem by Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballé. In this episode, you’ll also hear from Olympic medalists, a volunteer during the event, and an official for the Olympic stadium.
This week's Catalan phrase is “això va vent en popa a tota vela”, which means that a project is going well.
