19TH HOLE: THE READERS TAKE OVER
Edited by Gay Flood
August 16, 1976
NADIA AND COMPANYSir:Thank you for the coverage of the Olympics in your Aug. 2 issue. I had just returned from Montreal and was glad to find that one American magazine had maintained the Olympic spirit and mentioned all of the participants who deserved it. Nelli Kim's two perfect scores and Nikolai Andrianov's performances were as thrilling as Nadia Comaneci's. I was also glad that Frank Deford recognized the Korbut vs. Comaneci battle being waged by television and the press. But mostly I liked your positive view. That, coupled with a realistic look at the athletes—Nadia is a 14-year-old girl, Naber is a ham and Ender is a girl—gave your readers what I feel to be an honest picture of the Olympics.SARA HOHE Augusta, Ill.

Why doesn't SI do everyone a favor and let Verschoth pick the Kentucky Derby winner next year?

MEETING PLACES
Sir:
We noticed that the sites for the last three Summer Olympics and the site for the next all start with the letter "M": Mexico City, Munich, Montreal and Moscow. Does this mean that the 1984 Summer Games will be held in Miami or Madrid?

Sir:
An odds-on favorite to host the 1984 Summer Olympics would have to be the city of Manila. But then again, by 1984 another "M" site may be in the running: Mars.
