GREECE'S BID LEADER, ANGELOPOULOS, WON'T HEAD 2004 GAMES
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).
