CANADIANS FLOAT THEIR IOC REP AS SAMARANCH SUCCESSOR
Published December 7, 1994
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).
