    Haunting Photos of the Abandoned 1984 Winter Olympics Facilities

    Skiing's Online Community - Newschoolers.com

    In 1984, Sarajevo hosted the Winter Olympics. Just a decade later, the region was torn apart by a bitter years-long conflict, leading to widespread death and suffering. One not-so-familiar effect of this war was the toll it took on the Olympic infrastructure which had been built not that long ago. Today, these structures stand as a visual reminder of how quickly things can change.

    Absolutely sad what happened to that country.

    What occurred in the Balkans was utterly heartbreaking.

    There was a time in my life where if I came upon this I would look for anything to ride down it. Now, just the thought of it makes my bones crack just a little.

    And the Clinton administration taking the side of the Jihadists was really disgusting too.

    Should have converted those to slides.
