Countdown OLYMPICS

January 20, 1998

Days until opening ceremony: 18.

Snowfall yesterday: No new snow in Nagano city, no new snow on men's downhill course. Substantial snowfalls last week left more than 4 feet on the men's downhill course.

Update: Two members of a government-appointed environmental watchdog group for the Olympics say they will resign to protest the lengthening of the men's downhill course.

Going for the gold: Pre-Olympic ice hockey exhibition games between the Japanese men's national and Canadian select team ended Sunday with the Canadians capturing the five-game series with two wins, one loss, and two ties.
