Was the name of the city Torino, Italy changed by the Americans before the olympics?



Answer on Was the name of the city Torino, Italy changed by the Americans before the olympics?

No, most American's still refer to it as Turin (check out newspaper and online coverage, as Associated Press datelines all say TURIN, Italy and not Torino.) Just a decision the television has followed as the International Olympic Committee has asked that they use the local, Italian name of the community.
