Olympics One Year Countdown Makes CBC Radio

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- This week Salt Lake City marked the one year countdown to the 2002. Winter Olympics with fireworks. It was also the week two men accused of bribing Olympic officials to win the games were in court. The bribery scandal has tainted the Games. But it's not the only controversy dogging the city. The latest is over religion.

Three-quarters of the people in Utah are Mormons, or members of the Church of Jesus-Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Most of the Games organizers are Church members.

As the CBC's Conway Fraser reports, many non-Mormons are wondering if the 2002 Olympics will be about sporting events, or religious propaganda.

The entire mini-documentary can be heard via RealAudio at:
