Ice-skating in Olympic Stadium Amsterdam
During the month of February 2014, the old Olympic Stadium in Amsterdam used for the Olympics in 1928, will turn into an open-air ice-skating track. This unique occasion will make it possible for everyone to ice-skate in the famous stadium. On top of that, from 28 February to 2 March, the track will be used for the Dutch All Round and Sprint Championships. This event, being held right after the 2014 Winter Olympics, will probably also turn into a celebration for the Dutch winners of any Olympic medals in Sochi.
