Athletics exhibition opens at Barcelona museumA fascinating new exhibition has opened to the public in Barcelona exploring the remarkable legacy of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) and sport of athletics in historical context.

The IAAF Centenary Historic Exhibition opened at the Museu Olímpic i de l’Esport Joan Antoni Samaranch in the Catalonian capital this week and will be open to the public for six weeks, allowing plenty of time for sports buffs to book a break in one of the excellent hotels in Barcelona.

A temporary exhibition space at the museum has been transformed, with an eight lane sprint straight laid and marked out filled with 15 glass display cases containing a collection of historic artefacts unique in the sport’s history.

Just one of many fascinating displays and exhibitions taking place around this sensational Spanish city, it could represent a memorable day out for any of those planning to escape the winter blues with a European break over the coming weeks.
