SALT LAKE SHOWS OFF FOR OLYMPIC OFFICIALS

     The Olympic site-inspection team visited Salt Lake City to
examine the state's sports facilities.  The site-team is helping
the IOC "narrow the list of nine cities competing for the 2002
Winter Games to four by next January."  They were greeted by more
than 100 local dignitaries at the Delta Center, complete with a
letter from President Clinton. In addition to the ski areas, the
three day inspection was to include visits to the Salt Palace,
Abravanel Hall, and the site of the athletes' village at the
University of Utah.  Salt Lake is competing for the 2002 Games
with:  Quebec City, Canada; Tarvisio, Italy; Sion, Switzerland;
Jaca, Spain; Graz, Austria; Poprad-Tatry, Slovakia; Ostersund,
Sweden; and Sochi, Russia (AP, DENVER POST, 9/20)
