European Championships in Munich

Blog 5 from Alejandra

Hello everybody! Today i went to the European Championships held in Munich. It was awesome. I went to Olympia Stadion, I had never been there. It is huge. Fifty years ago in the same place the Olympic Games where held there. It was actually constructed to host them. I am a big athletics/track and field fan, so I was super pumped at this event. Although the weather was bad (since it was raining a lot) the event was not suspended and people where there happily. I learned that germans say “Es gibt kein schlechtes Wetter, nur falsche Kleidung”. That means “there is no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing”. That was very funny and optimistic.

I guess they are used to having a lot of rain and winter here. I went with my family and had a great time. We saw high jump, 800 meters, javelin throw and 4x100m and 4x400m relays. The crowd was full of people from different parts of Europe, I saw flags from Spain, Netherlands, Ireland, Switzerland and of course many maaany from Germany. I loved seeing everybody so pumped, cheering and screaming and having a blast. Can’t wait to go to another sport event! Munich is such a lovely city with different things to do everyday. 

Talk to you soon, Alejandra
