Run, swim, pose where Olympic champs reigned
In Sydney, you can swim in the same pool where Ian Thorpe won five Olympic medals in 2000. In Berlin, you can pose for photos in the stadium where Jesse Owens won four gold medals in 1936. In Lake Placid, N.Y., you can skate on the same rink where Eric Heiden speed skated his way to five golds in 1980.
You don’t have to go to London to enjoy the Olympics. Many venues used for past Olympic Games are still standing, some in modified form. A few are open for public sporting use, while many others offer tours for a fee. Many Olympic cities also have sports museums with heavy doses of Olympic memorabilia.
If you’re taking a trip to a city with an Olympic past, you might want to fit in a visit to the Olympic stadium or museum. It’s a way to relive those gold-medal moments and learn about city life before, during and after the games. For some of the smaller cities, the Olympics represented their one shot at claiming the world’s spotlight.
