Planning for possible terrorism at the Olympics

The opening for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio brings back warm memories for many who were a part of hosting the games in Salt Lake City in 2002. Wayne McCormack, a professor at the S.J. Quinney College of Law, coordinated the University of Utah’s involvement with the 2002 Olympics Winter Games. His experience led to security planning for major events and interest in international legal issues, including the law related to terrorism. He’s available to reflect on his experiences in 2002 for media interested in stories that take a look back on this part of Olympic history. He can also offer commentary on some of the security and terrorism issues the Rio planning team is likely considering.
