Why did you refuse to show any of the swimming?????? Why concentrate only on 'Track & Field' aka Athletics. there is MORE to the Olympics than what you have shown.

And the jump of Kerri Strug on the vaulting-horse in gymnastics?And Shannon Miller? And Dominique Moceanu? And Usa gymnastics team? And the medals of Svetlana Khorkina? And the participation of Romanians: Andrea Raducan, Maria Olaru and Simona Amanar?. And Lilia Podkopayeva? And the Kurt Angle gold medal? THIS DOCUMENTARY IS MISSING THE GREATEST OF ATLANTA. THAT LAMENTABLE!

pabloalanoca Sorry friend you are confused, Andrea Raducan and Maria Olaru did not participate in this olympiad. They compite in the Sydney olympiad 4 years later. The real participants that year with Amanar was Gina Gogean, Lavinia Milosovici, Alexandra Marinescu, Ionela Loaies and Mirela Tugurlan

I know that in archery at the olympics they shoot at 70 meters now. Did it used to be 50 meters? Otherwise why would Huish be training shooting across the street through the garage at 50 yards

I was very lucky to have been able to see the Olympic Flame in '96 passing through N. Georgia. I was 11 years old. Something that I will never forget. Very lucky to have been able to experience the centennial games in my hometown.

From this video the olyimpic games terminated in 1886, they did not begin until many years later.
Mary Purple (2 years ago)
The voice appears as a digitised voice for the 1996 olimypics back then in the beautiful city of Atlanta, I was there in 1996 and it is now 2016. An interesting fact the games were stopped in 1886.

Thank you for posting this video! Starting at 12:32 of this video, just as now, I cried then, as I watched these Olympic games on TV in Beijing. As the audience watched the carrying of the Olympic Torch, they gasped seeing Muhammad Ali walk on stage to light the Olympic flame. Muhammad Ali, you will be greatly missed!

I will never forget two things personal about the 1996 Atlanta Olympics:1.  Going to Dalton, ga to see the torch go through (for some reason it didn't go through Chattanooga, tn.)2.  by god's grace though we were planning to be there my family was not at the park the night of the bombing.  my grandfather was held up by something at work.  we went the next day instead

Where was the 100m final? This is almost always the or one of the most watched events throughout olympic history. A world record was broken. How on earth could that not make this film. That was also the entire heat had a star studded cast. There was huge drama involving a false start. That is the most historic 100m final in olympic history and why is it not here? Is it because an American didn't medal? This is why people try to find other non american outlets to watch international events.
GianniVHL (3 years ago)
+DeeTee221 of Course that is why they spent oodles of time on the womans 4x100 and virtually non on Mens 100 and absolute zero on mens 4x100.. Canada (Donovan Bailey) Won the 100m (broke World Record doing it) and anchored the 4x100 - (would have broken record there too but coasted 30 m out) those two events blow away anything else. first time US did not win a medal in the mens 4x100 when they actually finished. In addition, because of Donovon Bailey winning and breaking record for 100m Johnson the 200 and 400m winner was trying to call HIMSELF the fastest man on the planet even though it was always understood it is the 100m winner. Bailey was pretty pissed at this and they eventually decided on a 150m race in Skydome Stadium (now Rogers Stadium) where Bailey blew him away before Johnson faked an injury after Bailey had passded him. At the end of the day its a US production so they can do what they want but pretty lame if you ask me.

pabloalanoca (9 months ago)
Hannah Aldrich EXACTLY. I do not understand how such a documentary can leave out the jump made by Kerri Strug with which he gave the gold to USA and with which the ankle is almost broken. or the triple podium achieved by the Romanians Andrea Raducan, Maria Olaru and Simona Amanar. Or the medals of the great Russian gymnast Svetlana Khorkina. And other women like the Ukrainians who filled with emotion and charm the floor exercises and apparatus in the ARTISTIC GYMNASTICS. What a disappointment that this video being official hide those jewels, those beauties.
