The future of the Olympics

Regarding the sports article "Time, TV Redrawing Olympic Roster," Aug. 6: I'm surprised nobody has suggested the obvious solution to the overcrowded summer-games schedule - moving traditionally indoor sports such as basketball, gymnastics, and fencing, which are played predominantly in the winter, to the winter games.

This would give greater weight to the winter games - always the runner-up in prestige - while allowing the summer games to retain or add such obligatory sports as rowing and softball. This would preclude any future basketball "Dream Teams," since the winter games are held during the NBA season. Eric J. Klieber, Cleveland Heights, Ohio
