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.
