Barcelona going for Olympic Gold

Barcelona’s mayor Jordi Hereu has thrown the city’s hat into the ring as the venue for the 2022 winter Olympics.  It’s a long shot for the Catalan capital, but if the bid is successful it would be the second time the city will have hosted the Games, after the summer Olympics of 1992, and the only city ever to have hosted both winter and summer games.
The announcement was made at Barcelona’s Olympic Museum where the mayor said, ‘We want to relive the Olympic dream’ and that events would be divided between the city and the ski stations in the Catalan Pyrenees.  The bid still has to be approved by the Spanish Olympic Committee who have the final decision as to which city is put forward as Spain’s bid with the other main contender being Zaragoza.
