South Africa could return to Olympic competition...

South Africa could return to Olympic competition by 1996, according to an anti-apartheid sports leader who returned from a fact-finding trip to the racially divided country.

Sam Ramsamy, executive chairman of the South African Non-Racial Olympic Committee, fled South Africa 18 years ago. His 12-day visit this month, at the request of the Association of National Olympic Committees for Africa, was the first time he had been back to his homeland.

Ramsamy has briefed Jean-Claude Ganga, head of the African association, and a report from Ganga is expected to be sent this week to Juan Antonio Samaranch, president of the International Olympic Committee.
