OLYMPIC REPORT / 29 DAYS TO THE GAMES
Russia’s top Olympic official complained about conditions for the Atlanta Games, citing everything from the heat to the accommodations.
“There is a big difference between promises of the organizers before the Olympics and real conditions,” said Vitaly Smirnov, president of the Russian Olympic Committee.
Smirnov also said Atlanta organizers had not allowed Russian experts to examine the swimming pool and did not give Moscow a training schedule for the swimming events. He said the same was true for yachting.
