People walk past the logo of the Winter Olympics in Sarajevo, painted on the streets in central Sarajevo

REFILE CORRECTING TYPO IN SARAJEVO People walk past the logo of the Winter Olympics in Sarajevo, painted on the streets in central Sarajevo October 27, 2013. Abandoned and left to crumble into oblivion, most of the 1984 Winter Olympic venues in Bosnia's capital Sarajevo have been reduced to rubble by neglect as much as the 1990s conflict that tore apart the former Yugoslavia. The bobsleigh and luge track at Mount Trebevic, the Mount Igman ski jumping course and accompanying objects are now decomposing into obscurity. The bobsleigh and luge track, which was also used for World Cup competitions after the Olympics, became a Bosnian-Serb artillery stronghold during the war and is nowadays a target of frequent vandalism. The clock is now ticking towards the 2014 Winter Olympics, with October 29 marking 100 days to the opening of the Games in the Russian city of Sochi. Picture taken on October 27, 2013.

Abandoned and left to crumble into oblivion, most of the 1984 Winter

Olympic venues in Bosnia's capital Sarajavo have been reduced to rubble

by neglect as much as the 1990s conflict that tore apart the former

Yugoslavia. The bobsleigh and luge track at Mount Trebevic, the Mount

Igman ski jumping course and accompanying objects are now decomposing

into obscurity. The bobsleigh and luge track, which was also used for

World Cup competitions after the Olympics, became a Bosnian-Serb

artillery stronghold during the war and is nowadays a target of frequent

vandalism. The clock is now ticking towards the 2014 Winter Olympics,
