  • Description

    The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has received fresh written guarantees that there will be no political interference from the host countries for the 1980 Olympic Games in Moscow and Lake Placid, New York, the IOC President, Lord Killanin said in Barcelona, Spain, on Tuesday (12 October).

    The IOC executive is meeting in Barcelona this week to study problems arising from the Montreal Olympics. Lord Killanin, an Irishman, said the sporting and television success of Montreal had been badly tarnished by political problems. He said new letters were written to Soviet and American games organisers asking for reiteration of guarantees. At a news conference later, Lord Killanin spoke about politics and the games.
