  • NYC GAMES TO OFFER TRACK ATHLETES GOODWILL, AND CASH TO BOOT

              The Goodwill Games announced that $1.8M in prize money
         will be awarded for track and field events at next year's
         event, set to take place July 18-August 2 in N.Y., according
         to Frank Litsky of the N.Y. TIMES.  All track events will
         have eight-person finals, and each athlete reaching the
         finals "will receive prize money, ranging from $40,000 for
         first place in five events to $500 for last place in 13
         others."  The $1.8M figure "does not include bonuses of
         $50,000 to $100,000 for a world record and smaller bonuses
         for lesser records" (N.Y. TIMES, 12/8).  This marks the first
         time the Games has offered prize money (THE DAILY).
