  THE OFFICIAL REPORT 

of the Centennial Olympic Games was written by the professional staff of the Atlanta Committee for the Olympic Games. The content of the Official Report is strongly influenced by historical precedence and IOC requirements. The organizers and authors of this report have codified the experience and legacy of the Games for posterity and provided as much detail as possible to assist organizing committees in preparing for future Olympic Games. This is the first of three volumes. As its title, Planning and Organizing, suggests this volume addresses the broad array of details, grouped by functional or program category, that were essential to creating the Centennial Olympic Games. Success depended on the combined actions of the thousands of people organized to mount the Games and their attention to detail. The plans, concepts, research and rationale for decision-making, problem-solving, and organizing that comprised our efforts are presented here as fully as possible, including recommendations for future organizers concerning what-with the lessons of experience-were identified as the critical ingredients to success. Where we encountered problems, we have tried to address them from a constructive perspective with the sincere hope of assisting future organizers.

These Centennial Olympic Games were for us, first and foremost, about people-the thousands who collaborated for years in developing the plans; the 53,540 volunteers who welcomed and assisted visitors to Atlanta and the Southern United States during Games-time, many of whom worked with the Organizing Committee and in their communities for years preceding the Games; the citizens of Georgia who provided such enthusiasm and goodwill in support of our mission; and the 197 nations and their dedicated athletes who gave to 5 million spectators and the worldwide audience of 3.5 billion television viewers spectacular performances.

The details of these experiences-from planning through staging through dismantling-are documented in these pages. The three-volume Official Report provides an avenue for understanding the magnitude of the effort and the challenges integral to presenting the Games. The success of the 1996 Games lies in the hearts of the people who made them a reality. The memories of the collaboration and the goodwill and fellowship generated will shape our futures and be recalled as the most enduring legacy of the Games.
