Like Spain we have a saying that everything in Mexico starts late and the only thing that starts on time is the bullfight TAXI-DRIVER All being well, on October 12 another event will join the bullfight in its proverbial punctuality. On that date the XIX Olympiad opens at the Olympic Stadium at University City, Mexico.
During the following two weeks nearly 1,000 sporting events will take place in twenty different locations scattered around the City itself and as far away as Acapulco. Into Mexico will flood the athletes, the tourists, and 2,000 members of the world's press. The Games will be seen on television by up to 700-million people in seventy-six countries. This is the first time that a Latin-American country has been selected as the venue for the Olympics, and the Mexicans are fiercely sensible of the honour. How are they coping? Will they be ready? What do they think?
Five months before the Olympic flame arrives at Teotihuacan, the ancient city of the gods, a Late Night Line-Up team visited Mexico City to see how the Mexicans are preparing for those sixteen days in October.
