     Primo Nebiolo, the head of the International Track and Field
Federation, says he will not allow ACOG to schedule the Olympic
Marathon in the morning; he insists the event will remain in its
traditional spot before the closing ceremonies.  The IOC's
Medical Commission recommended the move, which has support of
many elite runners.  Nebiolo: "We have here, in the morning, more
humidity and less temperature, and in the afternoon, we have less
humidity and more temperature."  ACOG officials are yet to make a
decision -- a ticket brochure leaves out the time for the event
(Drape & Fish, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 12/14).
