No German Olympics

FRANKFURT, Germany () -- Still reeling from Berlin's much-criticized effort to secure the 2000 Summer Olympics, the country's top Olympic official ruled out a German candidacy for the next summer games.

The National Olympic Committee issued a report Thursday pinning Berlin's failure on too little support from the country's sports organizations and inadequate German representation on international bodies.

There was also little support from Berliners, some of whom mounted an anti-Olympic campaign. Sydney, Australia was awarded the 2000 Summer Games.
