The provincial government will host a reception for the almost
two dozen Nova Scotians who participated in the Atlanta Olympic
Games, Premier John Savage said today.

"Nova Scotians were thrilled with the accomplishments of their
provincial Olympic athletes," the premier said. "We are extremely
proud of all our athletes. While not all athletes won medals,
many of them established personal best efforts during the Games."

The province's athletes demonstrated "the gritty determination
that is so much a part of being a Nova Scotian and a Canadian,"
the premier said.

In addition to the athletes, the reception will also honour
coaches and trainers who were part of the Nova Scotia Olympic
contingent. Details such as date, time and place will be
announced shortly.
