 Track & Field News: "Loud Gun" Starting System Problem
The resulting graph shows that there is a very close fit between the actual start times from Atlanta and what we would have expected to find if the speakers did not work.
It shows essentially the same pattern for Athens that the previous graph showed for Atlanta: All lanes had longer start times in Athens than in Göteborg, and there was a progressive increase in the start times with increasing lane number.
Given that the 4x400 relay has the longest staggers and the 200 the shortest ones, the patterns shown in these graphs were consistent with the hypothesis that the differences between Athens and Paris were due to a starting system that did not transmit the sound of the gun properly through the loudspeakers in Athens.

Countries with winter climates, mostly in the northern hemisphere, such as Norway and Canada, or countries without winter climates but with mountains high enough in elevation with snow and ice, such as Morocco, have the natural physical conditions to develop and pratice winter sports.
Half of the Olympic winter sports, such as speed skating, bobsleding, luge, figure skating, ice hockey, and curling, require sophisticated and expensive high-techology and high-energy facilities and the other seven outdoor sports, e.g., various kinds of skiing and snowboarding, require sophisticated and expensive high-techology equipment.
The published data on the Winter Olympics provide only the results; but the environmental elements of climates and snow-covered moutains, the national cultural values, national sport organizations, and the will and performance of individual altheletes can only be suggested by this geographical analysis of these data.
