OLYMPIC BATTLE BREWING OVER MARATHON TIME
Published December 15, 1994
Primo Nebiolo, the head of the International Track and Field Federation, says he will not allow ACOG to schedule the Olympic Marathon in the morning; he insists the event will remain in its traditional spot before the closing ceremonies. The IOC's Medical Commission recommended the move, which has support of many elite runners. Nebiolo: "We have here, in the morning, more humidity and less temperature, and in the afternoon, we have less humidity and more temperature." ACOG officials are yet to make a decision -- a ticket brochure leaves out the time for the event (Drape & Fish, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 12/14).
