An athletics stadium in northeastern Spain offers a unique experience for athletes, combining nature and the usual six-lane track.

“It is spectacular. It is incredible. It is a privilege to have this track,” professional triathlete Nan Oliveras said referring to the Olot’s Tussols-Basil track built between 1999 and 2001. “It's like you're in a world apart, here inside."EFE
