SCANDINAVIA LOOKS TO KEEP GAMES' SALT CONTENT DOWN

     Ostersund, Sweden admits that Salt Lake City is the leading
candidate to receive the 2002 Winter Olympics, but refuses to
give up the fight to have another Scandinavian Olympics just
eight years after Lillehammer.  Christer Persson, president of
the Swedish bid committee, says his group can best provide the
"folk festival" concept.  The field for 2002 will be cut to four
January 24; the final vote is June 16 (Mike Dodd, USA TODAY,
12/15).
