Olympic Panel Makes Its Final Offer to N. Korea
A plan that would move at least a portion of four events at the 1988 Seoul Olympics to North Korea was presented to Korean representatives by international Olympic officials today.
With it went a warning that this was the last chance to resolve a dispute threatening the Games with another boycott.
International Olympic Committee President Juan Antonio Samaranch said an agreement involving archery, table tennis, cycling and soccer was “very, very close.” But a high-ranking Olympic official from North Korea indicated that chances of a final agreement might be no better than 50-50. The two sides have until June 30 to review the plan.
