The Olympic Stadium and Sunny Munich

The 1972 Summer Olympics were hosted by the city of Munich and we were fortunate to be able to visit the complex today.  The ’72 Olympics had some very special athletic moments including Mark Spitz winning, at that time, a record setting seven swimming gold medals all in world record time. And, of course, The Darling of the Games, Olga Korbut from the Soviet Union won three gold medals in gymnastics.  However the Munich Massacre will go down in history as the most tragic memory from the 1972 Olympics.  At 4:30 AM on September 5, eleven Israeli  athletes were kidnapped and murdered by a Palestinian group known as Black September.

On a brighter note, it was a beautiful sunny and warm day today and we thoroughly enjoyed our time outside.
