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.

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).
