New-Look Olympics

PARIS () -- Olympic officials once talked of eliminating some sports from the Summer Games. Now they're only talking about adding new ones.


The lineup of Olympic sports for the 2000 Games in Sydney, Australia, will be a focal issue when Olympic officials from around the world meet in Paris over the next 10 days.


Officials said there will be no major overhaul. The triathlon and taekwondo may be added, while any decision on dropping sports will be put off until after the 1996 Atlanta Games.
