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).
