DISNEY'S SPORTS COMPLEX MAY BE RUSHED FOR OLYMPIC OPENING
Published October 25, 1994
Walt Disney World in Orlando "hopes to break ground early next year on a new sports complex that may be able to host world- class athletes training" for the '96 Games. However the complex is scheduled to be finished in January, 1997, "with a primary goal of attracting a major-league baseball team for spring training." Disney publicist John Story: "Sports is a multi- billion-dollar business and we're just trying to get a small piece of that." The new facility would be for "serious and recreational athletes" and would host 160 events a year from fencing to basketball, track and tennis. The Amateur Athletic Union voted earlier this year to move its offices and some events to Disney World next year (Rosen & Drape, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 10/23).
