CANADIANS FLOAT THEIR IOC REP AS SAMARANCH SUCCESSOR

     With the announcement from IOC President Juan Antonio
Samaranch that he will not seek re-election in '97, there is
speculation in Montreal that IOC VP Dick Pound will be "one of
the likelier" candidates.  Pound has been "quietly" assisting
Quebec City's efforts to host the 2002 Winter Games and called
Quebec "very much" in the running: "You've got poor old Salt Lake
City out there, this is their eighth year as a candidate.  They
have no more rabbits to pull out of the hat.  After two Winter
Games in Europe, it might be North America's turn" (Jack Todd,
MONTREAL GAZETTE, 12/7).
