IOC PRESIDENT FAVORS ENDING WITH MARATHON
Published December 19, 1994
IOC President Juan Antonio Samaranch said Saturday that organizers of the Olympic Games in Atlanta "should stick with tradition and end the Games with the epic event" -- the men's marathon. Samaranch's position runs contrary to the beliefs of the IOC medical commission, as well as many athletes, who favor running the marathon in the cooler morning temparatures. Samaranch also expressed satisfaction with the weeklong joint meeting between the Association of National Olympic Committees and the IOC executive board (Melissa Turner, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 12/18).
