THE BEST OF BROADWAY: TALKS FOR FASTEST MAN II IN TIMES SQ
Published April 28, 1998
Negotiations are "under way to stage" a race between Donovan Bailey and Michael Johnson as "a finale to this summer's Goodwill Games," according to Neal Travis of the N.Y. POST. The race, for a purse that "could total more than" $5M, "would be staged on a track laid down in Times Square, and would be televised live around the world." Agents for Johnson, Bailey and Goodwill-backer Ted Turner "are reportedly trying to line up major sponsors for the classic matchup," which would be a replay of their head-to- head race last June in Toronto (N.Y. POST, 4/27).
