  • FIVE-RING NOTES

         Ollan Cassell, exec director of USA Track, welcomed the idea
    that revenues "accrued from track and field at the '96 Games be
    funneled back into the US program."  Cassell: "I would think
    right now the place we most need (help) is in promotion and
    marketing of the sport" (ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 10/29)....Bert
    Roughton, Jr. writes that "Atlanta could well host the Last
    American Olympics," saying the IOC will try to "spice things up
    by going to either China or South Africa"  "Both offer wonderful
    marketing opportunities: particulary China, where half the
    planet's population stands ready to become faitful vessels for
    Coke and McDonalds" (ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 10/29)....The Georgia
    Soccer Booster Club is pushing its guarantee of Olympic soccer
    tickets.  Members of the Club will have the opportunity ot
    purchase tickets to the semi-finals and medal rounds before they
    are made avaiable to the general public (ACOG).
