The Olympic Games in Barcelona 1992, 25 years ago (Jocs de Barcelona ’92) left us great memories such as the charismatic Cobi (the official mascot), “Hola” as a friendly greeting during the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games, the surprising ignition of the cauldron with an arrow, the song “Barcelona”, anthem of the Olympic Games and interpreted by the singer of Queen, Freddi Mercury and the Catalan soprano Montserrat Caballé. What was your best moment?

Barcelona is still a city that welcomes sport and its values. On October 8 the Barcelona Triathlon will be held in the city, in which all those lovers of the sport can register.
The triathlon of Barcelona will have the same route of the last years, which will be done by riding a bike, swimming, and running, a combination of styles that can be a great challenge for athletes.
At the Barcelona Princess Hotel we have a passion for sport, healthy living and challenges in our DNA, which is why some of the members of our staff will be forming the #BarcelonaPrincessTeam and will take part in this magnificent event for another year.
