THE BEST OF BROADWAY: TALKS FOR FASTEST MAN II IN TIMES SQ
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).
