    The greatest line ever about the boycotts, from any IOC Member, came from the irreverent mouth of Dick Pound, the Canadian who was a long-time IOC Vice-President. In 1988 there was a small boycott that was averted by Samaranch working behind the scenes with the Soviets. The Seychelles was one of 6 nations that eventually did boycott Seoul, to which Pound responded, "The Seychelles? Hell, it's only a nation at low tide anyway."

      From the II July 1974 edition. Buerkle scores convincing 5K win over the Soviets

      <<Buerkle, who called this his greatest win ever, was later asked what he concentrates on in a race. "I think about sex," he replied, "and this race was one long orgasm."
