    Question Olympic Theme

    I'm not quite sure if this is the right forum for this post. I apologize if it's not.
    Does anyone know who wrote the Olympic Theme? Not the Oylmpic Anthem, but the most common theme that we hear all the time.

    The orignal that was even used on ABC is Bugler's Dream (though I think trumpeter's nightmare might be a better title) composed by another Hollywood Composer Leo Arnoud (sp?)

    The John Williams dates only from the 1984 LA Olympics, it does incorporate Bugler's Dream in it.
