This is about the 1984 Winter Olympics track. It was damaged during the bloody conflict in the region in the early 90’s. The luge and bobsled track used as an artillery stronghold – and battlement and storage for their fighting and weapons. Smithsonian Magazine reports that “some defensive holes, drilled by troops, can still be seen in the track’s concrete walls.” The Siege of Sarajevo left over 10,000. One makeshift cemetery is located in the middle of the Olympic arena.
