WIN A VIP TRIP TO THE OLYMPICS

PLUS special Olympic edition Swatch watches to be won

The one hundredth Olympiad opens on 19 July in Atlanta. In celebration of what could prove to be the greatest sporting event of all time we have teamed up with Swatch, the Official Time Keeper of the Centennial Olympic Games to bring you the dream ticket.

We have two exclusive VIP trips for two to the final week of the Atlanta Games, 31 July to 4 August, which takes in most of the athletics finals and the spectacular closing ceremony. The prize includes flights to Atlanta, luxury hotel accommodation, meals, VIP passes to the Games and an exclusive bag of Swatch Watch giveaways. These trips are only available through official sponsors.

Swatch have also donated 25 special edition Swatch watches from the Legends Collection as runners up prizes. These watches are designed in homage to great Olympians such as Sebastian Coe, Bob Beamon and Ed Moses.

To enter our competition simply study the great moments of recent Olympic Games (depicted on this page) and decide which of the times quoted A, B, C or D is correct. Call 0891 325545 (Irish Republic 1550 123770) and leave your answers, name, address and daytime telephone number.

Calls cost 39p per minute cheap rate and 49p per minute at all other times (Irish Republic calls cost 58p per minute including VAT). Your call will last three minutes. Winners will be selected at random from all correct entries. No cash or date alternative. The competition closes at midnight on Monday 15 July. Usual Newspaper Publishing rules apply. The Editor's decision is final.

Swatch is the Official Timekeeper at the Centenial Olympic Games in Atlanta, responsible for all timekeeping functions. For the first time in Olympic history the timing crew will undertake not only all aspects of timing but also scoring for each event. This huge task demands a vast range of ground-breaking technology to monitor every facet of measurement, more than 100 tons of equipment and over 240 Swatch staff to ensure ultimate precision in Atlanta. State of the art digital photo finish technology has been newly developed by Swatch timing for the 1996 Olympic Games. For the first time ever this will allow colour images to be transmitted live to a giant video screen in the stadium and to television sets across the world.
