OLYMPIC FINANCING CONCERNS "LEFT BEHIND"

     With the '96 Games a year-and-a-half away, ACOG officials
have turned their attention from fund-raising to execution.  ACOG
COO A.D. Frazier "spends his days working up transportation plans
and high-tech security systems."  Frazier:  "Finance probably
consumed 80 percent of me the first couple of years, 50 percent
of me a year ago 30 percent of me today."  60% of ACOG's
projected revenue is under contract, with an estimated $634M
remaining -- including the sale of at least $221.8M worth of
tickets, and at least $73.2M from the yet-to-be awarded Japanese
TV rights (Melissa Turner, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 2/11).
