Old Bazza was also less than complimentary about the Atlanta Olympics in general in an accompanying article.
Atlanta was not one of the great Olympic Games - it would be at the bottom of my list of 12.
It was the centennial Games and everybody thought they should go to Greece. They had rather too many jobsworths (I remember it being hard to get to our commentary position easily) and the Centennial Park, in the build-up, was tacky.
But don't take my word for it, take Steve Redgrave's. He said he didn't feel the Atlanta Games were something he wanted to go out on. He thought Sydney was the place to go. And in my opinion, we went from the least enjoyable and least well-presented Games to the best.
