One of my duties was helping out in the coach and official meetings prior to the events. This was when the coaches could make last minute scratches and substitutions (from a pre-approved list), and lane assignments were drawn for all the heats. Although some of these faces are still familiar to me, I would be hard put to remember all the names, except that I wrote on the back of this particular picture. From left to right: Frank Whitebrook, Australia, Nikola Velev, Bulgaria, Sergio Orsi, Italy, Otto Bonn, Hungary (all ICF officials), Tom Horton, Commissioner for LA Canoe/Kayak, and myself.

Myself and the Swedish ICF official, Lars something.

I didn't spend much time with athletes, except the ones I already knew, but I did get acquainted with officials and coaches. This is Hayden Kenny, coach of the Australian team, celebrating after his son Grant won a medal.
