6 Cities Bid for Olympic Track, Field Trials in '92

From Associated Press

The Athletics Congress today announced the six cities competing to be the host of the 1992 U.S. Olympic track and field trials.

They are Sacramento; Seattle; New Orleans; Durham, N.C.; Eugene, Ore., and Knoxville, Tenn.

Organizing committees from each of the six cities submitted proposals last month, and the nine-member TAC selection committee will meet with representatives of the six finalists in Chicago July 6 to 8.

The selection committee will announce its decision at the annual TAC convention in Seattle, Nov. 27 to Dec. 1. The committee's recommendation must then be approved by the International Competition Committee of TAC, the governing body for track and field in the United States.

Indianapolis, which was host of the 1988 U.S. Olympic trials, was not one of the bidders for the 1992 event, which will be held either June 19-27 or June 20-28. The 1992 Olympics are set for July 25-Aug. 9 in Barcelona, Spain.
