The Secretary-General runs at Sarajevo Olympic Stadium
United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, who today ended a two-day visit to BiH, this morning visited the Olympic Stadium "Asim Ferhatovic - Hase" in Sarajevo.
Before carrying the torch in London, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon went for a symbolic run in the Olympic Stadium in Sarajevo, the city that hosted the 1984 Winter Olympics.
Mr.Ban carried a torch Thursday morning as he ran alongside Sarajevo's marathon runner Islam Djugum, who even during Bosnia's 1992-95 war trained daily but only after dark to avoid snipers.
Secretary-General said he will carry Sarajevo's spirit of resilience and reconciliation to London because here he saw a city that has risen from ashes and ruins and is now pulsing with "real life".
