We always look forward particularly to the pools issue of “sb” because summer is on its way here in Cologne and we ask ourselves which of these attractive facilities could be our holiday destination this year. Again, the decision this year isn’t easy.

Seven stadiums and sports grounds, ten sports halls and arenas, four swimming pools and five facilities for a particular sport: these are the winners of this year’s IOC/IAKS Award and the IPC/IAKS Distinction for accessible sports facilities. You can find them all in this special edition of “sb”.
