  • ACOG ORGANIZERS TOLD TO CANCEL PLANS FOR INT'L TORCH RELAY

         The IOC told ACOG Wednesday that they were "biting off more
    than they can chew" in plans for an international torch relay
    that would travel through each of the previous 17 Summer Olympics
    sites.  ACOG spokesperson Lyn May says the committee will now
    concentrate on a "symbolic link" with Athens, the original host
    city of the modern games.  The IOC advised ACOG "to concentrate
    on the national relay."  IOC member Dick Pound also "expressed
    concern" over the $10M burden potential international torch
    sponsors Coca Cola and UPS would take on.  Pound: "You get
    sponsors spending money on something that really doesn't
    contribute to the games" (Melissa Turner, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION,
    1/26).
