It's nearly the weekend... get sporty with inspiration from the Luxembourg History Podcast!

Today, it’s the first episode of a double-header exploring the history of Luxembourg’s participation at the Olympic Games from 1900 to the modern day.

To kick things off, we’ll be looking at a Luxembourger who won the marathon at the Paris 1900 Olympics; the life of Josy Barthel, arguably the Grand Duchy’s most famous athlete; and a naturalised Luxembourger who almost, but never quite, won gold at the Winter Olympics.

As ever, thanks for listening, and we hope you’ll enjoy the podcast!

Now what are you waiting for - download and listen, on iTunes, Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts.
