  • Description

    MR. AVERY BRUNDAGE, THE PRESIDENT OF THE OLYMPIC INTERNATIONAL COMMITTEE WAS WELCOMED BY MEXICAN OLYMPIC OFFICIALS WHEN HE ARRIVED AT MEXICO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT ON SUNDAY.

    MR. BRUNDAGE WAS WELCOMED BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE ORGANISATION COMMITTEE OF THIS YEAR'S OLYMPIC GAMES, RAMIREZ VASQUEZ, AND OTHER COMMITTEE MEMBERS.

    AMERICAN MR. BRUNDAGE, WHO WAS 81 LAST WEEK, IS A MILLIONAIRE AND A FORMER OLYMPIC ATHLETE.

    SINCE HIS ARRIVAL HE HAS BEEN ENGAGED IN TALKS WITH FELLOW MEMBERS OF THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE ON THE FUTURE OF THE OLYMPIC MOVEMENT. THE NATIONAL OLYMPIC COMMITTEES AND THE INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS ARE BOTH DEMANDING MORE POWER FROM THE INTERNATIONAL OLYMPIC COMMITTEE AND THREATENING DRASTIC ACTION IF THEY DO NOT GET IT.

    MR. BRUNDAGE SAID TODAY THAT THE AIM AT THE MOMENT WAS TO HAVE A COMMITTEE REPRESENTING NO COUNTRY, NO SPORT, BUT PURELY THE OLYMPIC MOVEMENT.

    ON SUNDAY COMPETITORS FROM COUNTRIES AS DIVERSE AS ICELAND AND PORTUGAL WERE ALSO ARRIVING AT MEXICO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT.
