GOODWILL GAMES TO CHANGE FORMAT ON SUMMER GAMES

     Turner Sports President Harvey Schiller has been in
discussions about how to make the Goodwill Games financially
viable.  Although the games have been a "perennially money-
losing" event, organizers are committed to holding the games and
are exploring a "winter edition" of the multi-sport contest.
Schiller is expected to make an announcement on Friday regarding
format changes, and "among the suggestions are cutting back the
number of sports, trimming the 16-day schedule or including off
days in that time period" (Joe Drape, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 1/8).
