25 years of the Olympic and Paralympic Games of Barcelona!

Twenty-five years after one of the most iconic Paralympic Games ever staged, International Paralympic Committee (IPC) President Sir Philip Craven has joined Spanish and sporting dignitaries to celebrate the anniversary of the 1992 Barcelona Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The ceremony at the Palacete Albeniz (Albeniz Palace) in Barcelona was also attended by Spanish King Felipe VI, Catalunya Generalitat President Carles Puigdemont, Barcelona Mayor Ada Colau, and International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Thomas Bach, as well as numerous Spanish Paralympic and Olympic athletes. A torch relay from the Palacete Albeniz to the Plaça de Catalunya also took place, with Paralympic archer Antonio Rebollo recreating his famous lightning of the Olympic cauldron, 25 years ago, when he became the first and only Paralympian to have ever lit the Olympic cauldron.
