GREECE'S BID LEADER, ANGELOPOULOS, WON'T HEAD 2004 GAMES
Published September 26, 1997
Gianna Angelopoulos, who last month became the first woman to lead a city's successful bid to host the Olympics when Athens was awarded the 2004 Games, said that she "has no intentions" of becoming CEO of the Athens Organizing Committee, according to Philip Hersh of the CHICAGO TRIBUNE. Angelopoulos: "I did my job (as bid committee chief), and I believe I did it perfectly. I don't want anything in return. All I want is to help." Under its deal with the IOC, Athens has seven months to put an organizing committee "in place" (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 9/26).
