Even President Hinckley Searched at Olympics

WEST VALLEY CITY, UTAH -- Security at the 2002 Winter Olympics was so tight that even LDS Church President Gordon B. Hinckley and his wife, Marjorie Pay Hinckley, were searched as they arrived to attend one of the many events. President Hinckley was reportedly courteous and cooperative while being searched by a national guardsman in a tent outside the E Center in West Valley City on Friday, February 22nd. But while the fact he was being searched may seem unusual, perhaps more unusual was the event the Hinckley's were attending, a sport known in the U.S. for its violence. The LDS Church leader was attending the bronze-medal hockey game.
