Geocache Description:


OLIMPIJSKA STAZA ZA BOB I SANKANJE TREBEVIĆ - SARAJEVO

 

 

Kad je 1977. Sarajevu povjerena organizacija ZOI 1984, predložena je izgradnja staze za bob i sankanje. Dizajn staze odobren je 1981, a radovi na izgradnji počeli su 1. juna iste godine. Izgradnja je završena 30. septembra 1982, a ukupni troškovi iznosili su 563.209.000 dinara. Na Igrama 1984. olimpijska sankaška takmičenja gledalo je 20.000, dok su takmičenja u bobu bila nešto posjećenija (30.000 gledalaca). Nakon Igara staza je korištena za takmičenja u sklopu Svjetskog kupa sve do početka jugoslavenskih ratova 1991, uključujući opsadu Sarajeva, koja je počela 1992. Staza je oštećena tokom ove opsade, kada je korištena kao artiljerijski položaj od strane Vojske Republike Srpske. Danas je staza većinom očuvana, mada se na jednoj od posljednjih krivina nalaze rupe od odbrambene paljbe. Staza je također postala popularno mjesto za crtanje grafita.

OLYMPIC BOBSLEIGH AND LUGE TRACK TREBEVIĆ - SARAJEVO

 

 

When Sarajevo was awarded the 1984 Winter Olympics in 1977, a bobsleigh and luge track was proposed. The track design was approved in 1981, with construction starting on 1 June of that year. Construction was completed on 30 September 1982 at a cost YUD 563,209,000. The first international competition of merit held at the track was the 1983 European Bobsleigh Championships in January of that year. The 1984 games had 20,000 luge spectators and 30,000 bobsleigh spectators. After the Winter Olympics, the track was used for World Cup competitions until the start of the Yugoslav wars in 1991 that would include the Bosnian War the following year. The track was damaged as a result of Siege of Sarajevo. During the siege, the track was used as an artillery position by Bosnian Serb forces. As of January, 2018 the tracks still remain mostly intact with war wounds of defensive fighting holes, drilled into one of the last turns of the course. The tracks have been used for graffiti and bicycling in the period between the end of the war and the commencement of renovations in 2014. In June 2014 restoration began on the track, including removal of overgrowth, and graffiti and the application of a protective coating from Start 1 down to the bottom. The track is currently used for summer luge training, and other summer activities. Besides that it is also famous for the graffitti which are drawn throughout the whole track.
