The very special conditions are described: because of UPS becoming an IOC TOP sponsor the USPS’s possibilities have been restricted. But nethertheless they found ways to propagate the Olympics. A special consideration is finally paid to the activities of UPS whch operated in the Olympic infrastructure. may be it is not philately in the sron sense, but it belonged to the postal communication in the broader sense to and from the Olympic Village, IBC, MPC during the Olympics.
