Mormons and the Olympics

NPR's Howard Berkes reports on a dispute brewing on how the 2002 Winter Olympics will be characterized. Already, some are nicknaming the games the "Mormon Olympics" because of their location in Salt Lake City. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints not only takes offense at this use of the term "Mormon", but denies that it has any improper influence with Olympic officials.
