    Background: WITH THE OPENING OF THE OLYMPIC GAMES LESS THAN A FORTNIGHT AWAY, HUNDREDS OF ATHLETES ARE ARRIVING EVERY DAY AT THE OLYMPIC VILLAGE IN TOKYO. AMONG YESTERDAY'S (SATURDAY'S) ARRIVALS WERE TEAMS FROM RUMANIA, AUSTRALIA, KOREA, THE SOVIET UNION AND THE CONGO (BRAZZAVILLE.)
    THE RUMANIAN TEAM WAS ONE OF CONSIDERABLE INTEREST TO THE LARGE CROWD OF ONLOOKERS WHO GATHERED TO WATCH IT MARCH INTO THE VILLAGE. PROMINENT AMONG THEM IS IOLANDA BALAS - THE BLONDE WOMEN'S HIGH JUMP WORLD CHAMPION. THE RUMANIAN TEAM HAS HOPES THAT SHE MAY TAKE HOME A GOLD MEDAL.

    A LARGE AUSTRALIAN TEAM IS AGAIN THIS YEAR DOMINATED BY ITS SWIMMERS - NOTABLY DAWN FRASER, HOLDER OF SEVERAL WORLD SWIMMING RECORDS.

    THE CONGO IS REPRESENTED BY JUST TWO MALE ATHLETES.

    AT THE FIRST FLAG-RAISING CEREMONY IN THE VILLAGE, WHEN THE FLAGS OF AUSTRALIA, CONGO, RUMANIA AND SOUTH KOREA WERE RAISED, MR. YAMADA, A FORMER JAPANESE AMBASSADOR TO MOSCOW, TOLD THE ATHLETES THE JAPANESE OLYMPIC ORGANISERS WERE MAKING EVERY EFFORT TO PROVIDE COMFORTABLE ACCOMMODATION FOR ALL 8,000 COMPETITORS AND OFFICIALS IN THE GAMES VILLAGE.
