Readers share memories of the '96 Games

I remember watching the Olympic torch being carried into town. I worked at a company located on U.S. 129, and the owners kindly allowed us employees to go out and see the torch pass through. I brought my camera to work with me that day to take pictures. To this day I can remember the excitement of that moment when the torch passed by me. I took pictures of the torch run, of course. On the night the opening ceremonies were broadcast, I got very emotional and wept for joy when scenes of the Atlanta area, the Georgia coast ...

Times staff members recall memories of '96 Olympics

"I was one of two non-sports reporters sent to Clark's Bridge Park every day during the games, covering such things as who got arrested, who fell in the lake because of the heat and whether any of these finely-toned rowers actually visited the McDonald's inexplicably set up in the athlete's village. But I also got to see the Dutch with their eye-searingly bright orange shirts and inflatable cows, the Norwegians and their Viking helmets, the Germans, the French and the Brits. My favorite moment was while I was walking around the VIP area, a huge bearded guy ...
