    (ATR) U.S. Vice President Al Gore and family made it to field hockey at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta during his first visit to the Games.

    He would return days later with more serious business on his mind about the Olympics, the investigation into the bombing at Centennial Olympic Park.

    In this edition of In the Moment, ATR Editor Ed Hula talks to the vice president about the federal government role in the Olympics. Gore headed the White House task force on the Atlanta Olympics formed by President Bill Clinton.
