WINTER OF THEIR CONTENT? OFFICIALS TALK UP GOODWILL GAMES
Published August 18, 1999
The inaugural Winter Goodwill Games will be held in Lake Placid, NY, from February 17-20, 2000, and officials said yesterday that the "top athletes in 11 selected sports" will be invited to participate in the event which will highlighted by 16 hours of TV coverage on TNT, according to Karen Allen of USA TODAY. While the '98 Goodwill Games offered $5M in prize money, the winter version "will offer considerably less." Games President Mike Plant said the purse will be "in seven figures" (USA TODAY, 8/18). Plant said that the event's purse will be "the biggest athletic prize purse in multisport winter sports history" and will "be a precursor to" the 2002 Winter Olympic Games (SALT LAKE TRIBUNE, 8/18). Olympic Regional Development Authority Chair Ted Blazer, whose company is planning the event in conjunction with the Goodwill Games staff, said the event will feature "solid ticket plans with reasonable prices" (Plattsburgh PRESS REPUBLICAN, 8/18). Tickets will range from $10-46 and go on sale August 23. For information can be obtained via http://www.goodwillgames.com (THE DAILY).
